Inflation and Rising Interest Rates

In order to get inflation under control, and it has been persistent, the market is starting to really believe that the Fed’s going to need to push rates up quite a bit. This is just a step in the process, and the Fed’s own targets are probably lower than what the market is anticipating. The risk in doing so will help to stop inflation or put the brakes on, but it may also come at the cost of economic growth and, in fact, may lead to a recession.
