“I do not believe economic conditions are likely to warrant an exceptionally low federal funds rate for so long,” [Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond President Jeffry] Lacker said in a statement on the Richmond Fed’s website explaining his dissent from the central bank’s Jan. 25 decision to pledge keeping its benchmark interest rate near zero “at least through late 2014.”

“I expect that as economic expansion continues, even if only at a moderate pace, the federal funds rate will need to rise in order to prevent the emergence of inflationary pressures,” [Lacker] said. – Bloomberg
