Summary: Fed's Williams Sees ‘Strong Case’ for Dec. Increase If Data Hold Up: "“Assuming that we continue to get good data on the economy, continue to get signs that we’re moving closer to achieving our goals” and are gaining confidence that inflation will move back toward the Fed’s 2 percent target, there’s “a strong case that can be made in December to raise rates,” Williams said, speaking with reporters at the University of California at Berkeley on Saturday."
