Morgan Stanley economists see 2023 Fed hike

NEW YORK: Morgan Stanley economists are sticking with their prediction that the Federal Reserve (Fed) won’t raise interest rates until 2023, breaking ranks with their own chief executive officer.

In an outlook released yesterday, strategist Andrew Sheets said his colleagues in the bank’s economics team reckon the United States central bank will end its asset purchases by the middle of next year, but won’t raise its benchmark rate from near zero until early 2023.

That’s because they expect inflation to moderate and participation in the labour market to show a sustained rise, Sheets said. They expect the world’s largest economy to grow 4.6% next year, led by consumer spending and capital investment.

It’s not the first time he has been more hawkish than his economists. In May, he said the Fed would begin tapering its bond buying at the end of this year, while his economists said it would begin in April 2022. The Fed this month announced taper plans. ― Bloomberg
