3:20 am
night goggles and weapons, so that they can protect this country from further attacks. the u. s. federal reserve says it will raise interest rates for the 1st time in 3 years. they were slashed to near 0. at the beginning, the pandemic interest rates were widely expected to stop moving up in march in an attempt to fight rising inflation in the u. s. federal reserve chad jerome pal says, getting high inflation under control is vital to a strong job market. so there are multiple forces which should be working over the course of the year for inflation to come down. we do realize that the timing and pace of that are, are highly uncertain and that inflation has persistent longer than we and than we thought. and of course, we're prepared to use our tools to assure that higher inflation does not become entrenched. let's beat not to william black. he joins us live from minneapolis, minnesota. he's a former federal regulator and professor of economics and law at the university of
3:21 am
missouri, kansas city, william black, welcome. it tells us more about why it's appropriate to raise rates in march. well, 1st rates have been exceptionally low for decades from the great financial crisis. and then some disruptions in the money market to cause them to throw money at the problem. and there's no reason for that to continue because the u. s. unemployment has is now lower than before the pandemic began. so a, there's no need to keep the low and be inflation, because the supply chain disruption has gone up in the united states to around 7 percent. so it's a good time to bubb b, trying to make sure there's no extra heat in the, on the monetary side says, to put it simply increasing interest rates, puts
3:22 am
a check on that higher bar. and costs helps to keep prices from rising. how far you think they could go? it is unlikely that it needs to go particularly high, and it's unlikely that it needs to persist very long. this is still a relatively short term problem. what we expect to much lower inflation next year, even if they didn't take these actions. so they'll probably have at least 2 near term up takes in the interest rate. and then they'll see whether they need a 3rd other, any risks inherent in this? i could you end up holding back economic activity more than intended. yes. but the, the big wrists are actually in the last 3 or 4 stories that you've handled because
3:23 am
all of those are supply chain disruptions. we just don't think of them in those terms. and if russia invades the ukraine and shuts off natural gas in the winter, too much of europe. when you can know that nations aren't going to let them know people die in their home. so divert natural gas completely away from factories. and that will, you know, cause major recession, but it will also reverberate throughout the world by causing much more severe supply chain disruptions. and as you explained, it isn't just cause inflation. it means that people in syria during the snow have, don't even have shovels to be able to deal with terrible snow. yep. there's a lot of variables have appreciate that william black could join his live there from minneapolis, minnesota. thanks
