It will ... chill pill, it will happen ...
US interest rates have risen faster than any other time in recent history ... should help cool-off inflation, shouldn't it? ...

How is US inflation via a key forward looking view?
The market is pricing expected inflation via inflation swap prices like this:
- 2.05% via the 1-year inflation swap prices
- 2.12% via the 2-year
- 2.21% via the 5-year
- 2.23% via the 10-year
Back to target: 'close to or at 2%' ;)
