    Fed's Kashkari says he is leaning toward further rate cuts

    Calling economic and financial market signals for the economic outlook “mixed,” Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari signaled that he is likely to support further reductions in U.S. interest rates to support growth.

    Trade tensions are making businesses cautious, he said, and the inversion of the U.S. yield curve that this week sent global stocks plummeting “is an indicator that people are nervous.” At the same time, the jobs market is strong, and so is consumer spending.

    As Fed policymakers gear up for their September rate-setting meeting, he said, they will be assessing all of the data to make a decision. “I am leaning towards the camp of, ‘yes we need to give more stimulus to the economy, more support, we need to continue the expansion and not allow a recession to hit us,’” he said.

    Feds’s Mester: Strong economic growth justifies further gradual increase in interest rates

    The president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Loretta Mester, in an interview with CNBC on the sidelines of an annual press conference hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in Jackson Hole, said that a strong US economic growth justifies further rate hikes.

    "Given the economic growth remains above the trend, inflation at 2% and very low unemployment, it is clear that the Fed has good reasons for further tightening of monetary policy," Mester said.

    Mester also said that, in her opinion, US GDP growth will reach almost 3% in 2018, followed by a slowdown in 2019 and 2020. In her opinion, a gradual rate increase is the best way.
