"In view of realized and expected labor market conditions and inflation, the (Federal Open Market) Committee decided to raise the target range for the federal funds rate to 1.25 to 1.5 percent," said the Fed in a statement after concluding two-day monetary policy meeting.
In December 2015 [url=http://www.discountjordanshoeswholesale.com/]wholesale jordan shoes authentic[/url] , the central bank first raised the interest rates from nearly zero and hiked three more respectively in December 2016, March, and June this year.
