White House's Kudlow sees room for Fed to reverse rate hike

Kitco News

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Tuesday said he believes the Federal Reserve has room to reduce interest rates when it meets this month and could reverse the rate hike it imposed in December.

Kudlow, speaking at an event hosted by CNBC, said he thought the U.S. central bank should aim for price level stability and not focus on jobs data like last Friday’s U.S. jobs report.
