It’s a fine line that the US Federal Reserve has to walk when it comes to interest rate policy. On the one hand, there is inflation, which is felt by all citizens and is also increasingly presenting companies with challenges. On the other hand, there is the economy, which is still booming in the USA but could be choked off by excessively drastic interest rate measures. The framework conditions for the decision of the US Federal Reserve are extremely unfavorable: Neither the further course of the corona pandemic nor that of the war against Ukraine are foreseeable.
