Federal Reserve regulators opted to pause interest rates while continuing to keep a close on forthcoming economic data, such as unemployment and wages. Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company CIO Brent Schutte comments on Fed Chair Jerome Powell's statement, how the Fed will be approaching labor market data, and recession risk amid inflation.
