Kitco News

JACKSON, Miss. (Reuters) - The stimulus to the U.S. economy from the recent tax reform plan may stretch out longer than expected as businesses take time to unravel what the “complicated” overhaul means for them, Atlanta Federal Reserve bank president Raphael Bostic said on Thursday.

“The tax reform was complicated and it took businesses a long time to figure out what it meant,” said Bostic, arguing that the boost to the economy may stretch out over a longer period of time than expected. “You are only going to start to see actions.”
