How Could High Inflation Affect the Fed?

Bulls and bears may debate on whether the Fed is likely to increase rates two more times after the June rate hike. During the Fed’s May meeting, the inflation (TIP) target was described as “symmetric,” suggesting that the 2% target would not be used to initiate any dramatic changes to US monetary policy.
