QUINCY, Mass. (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve is unlikely to raise interest rates so rapidly that it causes a U.S. recession, Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren said on Friday.
"I don't think recessions happen because it's been a long time ... but because of policy mistakes. Right now it is hard to see us raising rates too rapidly," Rosengren said at a business event, adding the probability of a U.S. recession at the moment is "quite low."
