Fed Bostic penciled in a rate hike in Q3, maybe early Q4 of 2022

Atlanta Fed Raphael Bostic told CNBC he has “penciled in” a rate increase in “late third, maybe early fourth” quarter of 2022. “Our experience from the pandemic has really frankly surprised to the upside,” he added “I’ve really adjusted my expectations moving forward.”

Bostic expected the supply chain disruptions to “last longer than we expected”. He said, “the labor markets are not going to get to equilibrium as quick as we hoped, but demand was also going to stay high and that combination was going to mean we’re going to have inflationary pressures.” It’s becoming “clearer and clearer” inflation pressure “is going to last into 2022.”
