The Federal Reserve should plan to raise interest rates twice more this year so to avoid getting behind the curve but also to avoid rushing its tightening plans, Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker repeated on Monday.
“I still think that’s the right call,” he said of the pace of rate hikes, which is in line with the median Fed forecasts, and which he called “gradual.”
“I don’t want to get behind the curve, but I don’t think we need to rush, either,” he added in a speech at the University of Pennsylvania on digital money.
