“If we start going up from here we are going to get into restrictive territory,” Bullard said in a Bloomberg Television interview. “Do we really want to do that when inflation expectations are already hovering below our target for the next five years?” 

Most Fed members and Bullard’s colleagues believe at least two more rates hikes are appropriate for the rest of 2018 with the unemployment rate now at 3.9 percent while inflation is edging up toward the Fed’s 2-percent target.
