Fed's Kaplan: Politics 'Screened Out' at Meetings

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Robert Kaplan said the central bank "works hard" to remove politics from decision-making. "One of the great strengths of this country is an independent central bank," Kaplan said in an interview with Bloomberg Economics Editor Michael McKee in Mexico City. "It's very critical that the Federal Reserve remain independent and without regard to political considerations." (Source: Bloomberg)
