A US rate setter says there’s “no hurry” to lower interest rates.
The head of the Atlanta Federal Reserve, Raphael Bostic, stated to BBC News that US interest rates will need to be maintained at a “restrictive level” and may only begin to decline “at the end of 2024.”.The world economy has been affected in recent weeks by the expectation of a delay in US interest rate decreases, which has affected the cost of borrowing for governments, particularly in the UK.

These shifts in the government debt market may result in increased costs for business and mortgage borrowing. Andrew Bailey, the governor of the Bank of England, made a point of stating in Washington that the UK’s inflation pattern differed from the US’s.
