    “A rate hike remains the most likely scenario. The lack of a move now would arguably be more disruptive than a move, and more disruptive than standing pat in September.

Unemployment of 5.0% matches many definitions of full-employment. In the Great Recession, the US lost 8.7 mln jobs. It has grown 13 mln during the recovery and expansion. In September, the three-month annualized wage increase was 2%. In November, it was 2.8%.”
