(Reuters) – Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank President Esther George on Friday said she would support changes in the U.S. central bank’s interest rate policy if new data pointed to a weaker economy.
“There are certainly risks to the outlook,” George said in a statement regarding her decision to dissent on the Fed’s decision to lower interest rates on Wednesday. “Should incoming data point to a weakening economy, I would be prepared to adjust policy.”
