The article reports that monetary policy is still accommodative and interest rates will continue to rise in the U.S. as the economy strengthens and employment gains. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago president Michael Moskow told that the federal fund rate has risen from its 40-year low of 1% to 2 %. As the Fed raises interest rates any labor market weakness or a drag on spending, such as increased energy prices, could have more impact on the economy.
