“If the new data is broadly in line with our forecasts and inflation comes down as expected, we won’t need to raise rates any further,” Macklem said in a speech to financial analysts in Quebec City.
“We monopolize inflation. Monetary policy is working,” Macklem said, adding that economic growth would be “close to zero” until the third quarter of this year.
