Loretta Mester, President & CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

MARKET WATCH: Fed’s Mester says larger risks come from hiking rates too little
The Federal Reserve should be wary of wishful thinking about inflation that would lead the central bank to pause hiking interest rates or reverse course, Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester said on Tuesday. “Given current economic conditions and the outlook, in my view, at this point the larger risks come from tightening too little and allowing very high inflation to persist and become embedded in the economy,” Mester said in remarks to the Economic Club of New York. Mester said her preferred path for the Fed’s benchmark rate is above the median forecast of the Fed’s “dot-plot,” which points to rates getting to a range of 4.5%-4.75% by next year.

Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland President Loretta Mester said Tuesday that even with a large amount of rate rises this year, the central bank has yet to get surging inflation under control and will need to press forward with tightening monetary policy.

“Unacceptably high and persistent inflation remains the key challenge facing the U.S. economy,” Mester said in a speech given before a gathering held by the Economic Club of New York. “Despite some moderation on the demand side of the economy and nascent signs of improvement in supply-side conditions, there has been no progress on inflation,” Mester said.

“Given the current level of inflation, its broad-based nature, and its persistence, I believe monetary policy will need to become more restrictive in order to put inflation on a sustainable downward path to 2%,” Mester said Tuesday in a speech to The Economic Club of New York.
