About Kashkari:

Kashkari (dove): Minneapolis Fed chief, Neel Kashkari, was advocating rate cuts as inflation was subdued. He will likely pipe down if commodity prices indeed head higher. Oil is now above $61bbls and that is something to monitor in 2020 considering the Chinese trade deal and OPEC+ accord. He argues, however, that the Fed should commit to not raising rates again until core inflation rises back to 2% on a sustained basis.
