ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the interest rate carried out by U.S. Federal Reserve Board. He stresses that the Federal Reserve hinted that there will be no more rate cuts in store due to the fear that it might cause inflation. However, he stated that the Federal Reserve has yet to use its most effective strategy, which is to strengthen the value of the U.S. dollar, to prevent more rate cuts.
