ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the public debate among some U.S. Federal Reserve officials to raise interest rates to keep inflation from jumping past the central bank's 2% target in October 2014. It is noted that an aggressive path for rates that is not likely to be justified by developments in either the U.S. or the world economy is shown by most of the rate projections.
