El-Erian Says Jobs Report Could Be Key to Fed’s Timing

The monthly jobs report could be a swing factor for the Federal Reserve in determining whether to raise rates next month, said Mohamed El-Erian, chief economic adviser at Allianz SE and a Bloomberg View columnist.

“If they see solid jobs growth -- in excess of 200,000 -- and second if they see wages finally move up, that is a signal they better get going,” El-Erian said Sunday in a Fox News broadcast interview.
