Kashkari says Fed needs to press ahead in its inflation fight

Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari says the U.S. central bank needs to press forward with tighter monetary policy until it is clear that very high levels of inflation are moving back down.

“When inflation is 8% or 9%, we run the risk of un-anchoring inflation expectations,” Kashkari said at an appearance Tuesday, and if that happened, the Fed would likely have to embark on very aggressive rate rises to restore balance.
