美联储官员担心美国经济下行风险上升-搜狐新闻  新华社华盛顿2月17日专电(记者高攀)美国联邦储备委员会17日公布的1月份货币政策会议纪要显示,许多美联储官员担心近期全球经济和金融市场动荡导致美国经济不确定性和下行风险上升,暗示美联储对加息将更加谨慎。  会议纪要显示,在1月份货币政策例会上,几乎所有美联储官员都谈到美国金融环境更加收紧,体现在股市下跌、信用利差扩大、美元汇率进一步上涨和金融市场波动性增加。他们认为,如果这些影响持续下去,可能相当于美联储进一步加息带来的效果,将会成为美国经济下行风险上升的重要因素。  会议纪要显示,一些美联储官员认为,在下次加息前等待更多信息印证美国潜在经济增长能力和通胀前景是较为审慎的做法。美联储官员一致同意,今后加息的时机和节奏将取决于未来经济和金融市场形势发展,以及这些形势对美国中期经济增长前景的影响。  美联储去年12月启动近十年来首次加息,但此后全球经济增长放缓和金融市场大幅波动令美联储对美国经济前景担忧增加,在今年1月的货币政策例会上决定维持联邦基金利率不变。  近期多位美联储官员在公开演讲中呼吁,在美国金融市场平静和通胀回升迹象明朗之前,美联储应暂时放缓加息节奏。  作者:高攀 (来源:新华社)相关的主题文章:
