FedÕ Kohn says pledges on rates depend on economy

Federal Reserve vice chairman Donald Kohn said pledges to keep interest rates at a given level shouldn’t be unconditional and should change as the economy evolves. “Commitments to maintain interest rates at a given level must be properly conditioned on the evolution of the economy,” Kohn said today in remarks to a monetary conference at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. “Central banks cannot make unconditional interest rate commitments based only on a time dimension.”
