Fed’s Yellen Downplays Long-term Inflation Risk
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is downplaying concerns about rising inflation despite recent signs that price increases are picking up. The Labor Department said Tuesday, Consumer prices have risen 2.1 percent in the past 12 months. If maintained over time, that rate would exceed the Fed’s target for inflation of 2 percent and signal a potential need to raise short-term interest rates from near zero. Higher rates could possibly limit economic growth.
