CHARLES EVANS, PRESIDENT & CEO OF CHICAGO FED

REUTERS: Fed's Evans sees year-end rates at 2.25%-2.5%, and then likely higher

Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans on Tuesday said the Fed could raise its policy target range to 2.25%-2.5% by year end and then take stock of the state of the economy, but if inflation remains high will likely need to hike rates further.

"Probably we are going beyond neutral -- I mean, that's my expectation," Evans said at the Economic Club of New York. Most Fed policymakers estimate neutral to be somewhere between 2.25% and 2.5%.

BLOOMBERG: A 30-Year-Old Crypto Billionaire Wants to Give His Fortune Away
The Economic Club of New York has hosted kings, prime ministers, and presidents, as well as Amazon.com Inc.’s Jeff Bezos and JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon.

As the featured guest one morning in February, Bankman-Fried looks schlubby as usual, reclining on a gaming chair in blue shorts and a gray T-shirt advertising his cryptocurrency exchange, FTX, his mop of curly hair flattened by his headphones. He’s speaking by Zoom from his office in the Bahamas.

CNBC Treasury yields fall as investors keep watch over bond spreads

In a speech to the Economic Club of New York, Kansas City Fed President Esther George said the curve didn’t necessarily signal a recession but could be a headwind for some banks.

“My concern about an inverted yield curve does not reflect its intensely debated value as a predictor of recession. Rather, my view is that an inverted curve has implications for financial stability with incentives for reach-for-yield behavior,” George said.
