Comments hitting the wires from an interview given by the BostenFed man to Bloomberg

  • jobs report could signal greater economic weakness that delays hike
  • weak jobs growth showed Fed was right to delay hike
  • would delay rate hike to 2016 if unemployment rises or GDP growth below 2%

Dove turned hawk seemingly not quite sure what he wants

  • no need for evidence of higher inflation or wages to raise rates
  • would back "appropriate" rate hike even if market probability 30%
  • delaying rate hike too long risks abrupt tightening
  • international conditions biggest risk for US economy
