the more the market believes that the Fed will immediately reverse course, the less effective raising rates will be in moderating inflation, and the more the Fed will have to raise rates. Inflation has become imbedded in the economy and is front of mind for every American.

"Inflation has become imbedded in the economy"

That is exactly what happened from early-1970's through early 1980's. Inflation metastasizes through the entire supply chain. It took onerously ridiculous high interest rates by FED to finally kill inflation. Good news was economy recovered fast once inflation was under control. But that was a different FED. Today we have a political FED. They will pussyfoot with interest rates and inflation will keep going for many years.

The one thing that happens is interest rates kills the housing and car markets as far as people won't be able to afford higher interest rates...   This in itself will help the supply chain catch up...    However restaurants, super markets, and stores such as Costco, Walmart will raise prices if demand goes down to try and make up for the loss of revenue...
