  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike

    William Dudley, President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, speaks at Brooklyn College in the Brooklyn borough of New YorkRaising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.

  • Icahn's investment fund posts first loss since 2008 on oil plunge

    Carl Icahn gives an interview on FOX Business Network's Neil Cavuto show in New YorkBillionaire activist investor Carl Icahn's publicly traded investment fund posted its first annual loss since 2008 last year, undone by plummeting oil prices, the company said in a regulatory filing on Friday. Results were hurt by a halving of oil prices between June and December amid a global supply glut. "This year's results were obviously disappointing, with the precipitous decline in oil prices impacting the profitability of many of our segments," Icahn said in a statement. The performance of Apple Inc , the largest position in Icahn's investment segment, "softened the impact of the decline in oil prices and hopefully will continue to do so," Icahn said.
