We probably need to do further interest-rate increases.
If data were to continue to come in stronger than expect, would certainly raise rates more.
2% inflation is a global standard and not something the Fed is looking to change.
Fiscal authorities are concerned about the debt limit.
The debt limit debate can only end with congress raising it, which has to happen.
Congress needs to raise debt ceiling in timely fashion

I am not actively contemplating the sale of securities.
