Chicago's Moskow on the US economic outlook

In the speech 'U.S. economic outlook' given on 24 August Michael Moskow of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago said the United States needs higher interest rates to keep inflation down as the job market tightens and energy prices remain high.

"For me, appropriate policy means that we continue to reduce accommodation and return to a neutral federal funds rate," Moskow told the Illinois CPA Society. "It is very important that we keep inflation contained."
