    Consumer demand remains healthy, though slowing
    Labor market reacceleration at this point seems unlikely
    There is more uncertainty around the path of inflation given that progress over last six months has been so reliant on goods
    Companies still trying to raise prices; need to see how consumers and competitors react
    First quarter will be important given that businesses tend to mark up at the start of the year
    US still at a point where inflation is above target and employment is near max
    Labor market is ‘normalizing nicely’
    No problem ‘toggling’ rate to more normal levels as you build confidence inflation is falling
