Marketing - Finance (general) / économie, inflation
English term or phrase: on the case / quarter point
But Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, is on the case. The Fed raised its benchmark interest rate by a quarter point last month, the 17th straight increase, in its efforts to gently brake the U.S. economy by reining in spending.
