De Fed verhoogt de rente opnieuw (lichtjes)

Monetair beleid

De Fed heeft de rente in de VS met een kwart procent verhoogd, ondanks de licht gedaalde inflatiecijfers. Dat schrijft de FT. 

Ms Yellen also acknowledged the weaker inflation readings of late, but insisted they were significantly driven by one-off reductions in categories of prices such as wireless telephone services and prescription drugs. “The committee still expects inflation to move up and stabilise at around 2 per cent in the next couple of years,” said Ms Yellen.
