US: Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen Speech

Wed Sep 30 14:00:00 CDT 2015

Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen opening remarks to St. Louis Fed community banking conference.

Janet Yellen nearly confined her remarks today to the nation's community banks but she did, in what perhaps if extended could be called a hawkish comment, describe the economy's improvement in recent years as "significant". Turning back to community banks, she stressed their importance to the economy and the need to ease their regulatory burdens.
