미 연준 부의장 “고용 물가지표, 정책목표에 근접”
The vice chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve says the Fed is very close to its employment and inflation targets… deemed the markers for raising rates.
Speaking at the Economic Club of New York on Monday, Stanley Fischer also suggested that low rates can lead to longer and deeper recessions, making the economy more vulnerable.
Pressure for a rate hike in December is building with the U.S. core personal consumption expenditure index, the Fed’s primary inflation guide, hitting one-point-seven percent in August, and the unemployment rate in September recording five percent,… considered full employment in the U.S.
But Fischer added that it’s not a simple decision for the Fed to raise rates as there are factors beyond its control, like slower overseas growth, weak investment and an aging population.
