Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco president John Williams says there should be a third rise in US interest rates in 2017, given that the nation now has low inflation and full employment. He warns that failure to increase interest rates could risk overheating the economy, which could in turn result in higher inflation. Williams adds that the Federal Reserve should also begin reducing its balance sheet, which has risen to $US4.5trn.
