(Reuters) – Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said on Wednesday that existing rules governing the investment activities of central bank officials were “now seen as clearly inadequate” and that changes were needed after the recent announcement that two reserve bank officials were active investors.
Powell, responding to a question after the last Fed policy meeting, also said he was unaware of the business activities of reserve bank chairmen Robert Kaplan and Eric Rosengren which drew criticism from observers of the Fed.
