ABSTRACT
The article reports on Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago president Michael Moskow's views concerning neutral federal funds rate. In his speech at the University of Chicago, Illinois, he explained that a neutral federal funds rate does not mean the Federal Reserve Board will not raise rates again as inflation remains at the top of a comfort zone, and an increase in inflation could translate into an interest rate increase. He further noted that an unexpected increase in inflation would be a serious concern, while a decline in inflation would be beneficial.
