TOPIC: The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates this week, according to an article by CNNMoney.com. However, some economists say raising rates will do little to curb other factors that affect the economy, such as increasing energy costs and housing prices. Wages have long been a cause of inflation as higher wages raise the costs for employers. Employers then raise prices to compensate, which urges employees to seek additional raises.
