“I’m not even convinced that inflation has peaked yet,” Mester said in a webcast with Market News International, assuring her attention is on the services sector.

“That tends to be much more persistent and rents are still very high and take a while to show up in core inflation. It’s still going to show up more on that side… I haven’t seen much to suggest it’s starting to come down “, he added.
