The Federal Reserve cut its benchmark interest rate for the third time this year, shaving off another quarter of a percentage point to a range of between 1.5% and 1.75%. Arguments have raged at the central bank about the need for further easing in America’s still robust economy. Many have read the runes of the carefully worded statement by Jerome Powell, the Fed’s chairman, that “policy is likely to remain appropriate”, to suggest that future reductions are on hold.
美国联邦储备委员会今年第三次下调基准利率,将利率再下调0.25个百分点,至1.5%至1.75%的区间。在美国仍然强劲的经济中,关于进一步放松货币政策必要性的争论已经在中央银行引起了激烈的争论。许多人已经看到了美联储主席杰罗姆·鲍威尔措辞谨慎的声明——“政策可能仍将保持适当”,暗示未来将暂停降息。
Official figures showed that the American economy grew by 1.9% at an annualised rate in the third quarter. The data underlined the Fed ratesetters’ conundrum; consumer and government spending remained buoyant, though business investment was limp.
官方数据显示,美国经济第三季度年化增长率为1.9%。这些数据突显了美联储利率制定者的难题;尽管商业投资疲软,但消费者和政府支出依然强劲。
