,In an essay published Tuesday, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard pointed to two past examples, in 1983 and 1994, when the Fed raised rates but did not trigger a recession, and said the central bank should aim to follow that example.

Federal Reserve policymakers on Tuesday promised further rapid interest-rate hikes to bring down high inflation, but pushed back against growing fears among investors and economists that sharply higher borrowing costs will trigger a steep downturn.

"Many are worried that the Fed might be acting too aggressively and maybe tip the economy into recession," San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly said in an interview on LinkedIn. "I am myself worried that left unbridled, inflation would be a major constraint and threat to the U.S economy and continued expansion."

The Fed, she said, is therefore "tapping the brakes" by raising interest rates to cool demand.

"We are working towards that as quickly as we possibly can, and hopefully Americans everywhere will start to see some relief in their pocketbooks," she said, adding that she expects the economy to slow but not stop growing.

The Fed earlier this month raised rates by three-quarters of a percentage point -- its biggest rate hike since 1994 -- to a range of 1.5%-1.75% to battle inflation that is at a 40-year high. Daly last week said she believes another 75 basis-point rate hike next month will be warranted, though on Tuesday she was not asked specifically about July's meeting.

New York Federal Reserve Bank President John Williams also said he sees the need to act decisively to curb inflation.

"We need to move expeditiously," Williams said in an interview on CNBC. "In terms of our next meeting I think 50 (basis points) or 75 is clearly going to be the debate."

Both Daly and Williams said they expect the unemployment rate to move up a few tenths of a percentage point, from its current 3.6% level, but they both said the labor market is strong and the economy has enough momentum that they do not expect a recession.

In an essay published Tuesday, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard pointed to two past examples, in 1983 and 1994, when the Fed raised rates but did not trigger a recession, and said the central bank should aim to follow that example.

The Fed's "forward guidance that additional policy rate increases are likely in coming months is a deliberate step to help the FOMC more quickly move policy as necessary to bring inflation back in line with the Fed’s 2% target," Bullard wrote.

The Federal Open Market Committee, known as the FOMC, is the Fed's policy-setting body.

U.S. consumer confidence dropped to a 16-month low in June on worries about inflation, data from the Conference Board showed Tuesday, a signal that Daly said she is watching closely. Read full story

    华西证券首席宏观分析师孙付6日称,在美国中期选举背景下,拜登政府面临通胀和对华贸易政策的权衡。拜登政府的短期首要经济任务是抗击通胀,可能需要调整对华关税做出政策配合。东吴证券(601555)分析师陶川稍早前认为,拜登的政策受耶伦影响的可能性会更大。他表示,耶伦作为拜登内阁的第三号人物,地位仅次于副总统哈里斯和国务卿布林肯,相对来说,戴琪排位较为靠后。加上近期企业界的施压加码,美国的政治环境使得削减对华关税的可能性增加,但考虑到美国官员间尚存分歧,削减规模有限。来晚了,先留名
