We have got to figure out how fast we are going to move our policy to try to arrest that inflation and to wrestle it back down to 2%,” On supply and demand Bostic stated, “When you bring demand down, that has the risk of slowing the economy down so that the economy stops growing, where it loses all of its momentum, and then you might get to a situation that some would describe as recessionary,”  The Federal Market Committee will hold its next meeting September 20 – 21, a rate increase and monetary policy action are anticipated.
