Patrick Harker announced the need to raise the Fed rate

Patrick Harker is confident in need of a rate hike throughout 2022. He also announced a likely reduction in the volume of government bonds. The head of the Philadelphia Fed gave his forecast for US economic growth. He believes that the country’s GDP may grow by 3-3.5% by the end of this year.

And in 2023, it will approach the target level of 2%. Patrick Harker currently has the right to vote at FOMC meetings. In the second half of the year, he will not have it.
