Quick Summary

The Fed's rate hike on Wednesday, its biggest increase in more than a quarter of a century, lifted its target for the benchmark overnight lending rate to a range of 1.50% to 1.75%.

Waller argued on Saturday that it was the Fed's overly specific promises about when it would end its asset purchases that were at fault.
