Article content

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell will address the annual global central banking conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Aug. 26, a highly anticipated speech that could signal how high US borrowing costs may go and how long they will need to stay there to bring down soaring inflation.

Powell, in what will be his fifth year speaking at the event, will talk about the economic outlook at 10 am EDT (1400 GMT), the US central bank said on Thursday. (Reporting by Ann Saphir; Editing by Diane Craft)
