The Philadelphia Federal Reserve President, Patrick Harker, has called for a halt to any potential interest rate hikes in the near future. Mr. Harker’s plea was made against the backdrop of pressing economic challenges, and the hope that there would be a more accommodative stance towards the financial situation of households and businesses.
However, despite the rhetoric, it is important to point out that the Federal Reserve is highly unlikely to engage in any rate cuts anytime in the near future. This is primarily due to the fact that the Federal Reserve wants to ensure that the available supply of economic stimulus is sound and well managed, particularly as the economic landscape may become increasingly uncertain in the coming months.
