The Wall Street Journal: Kashkari says Fed needs to press ahead in its inflation fight


Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari says the U.S. central bank needs to press forward with tighter monetary policy until it is clear that very high levels of inflation are moving back down.
