WASHINGTON, Sept 9 Federal Reserve Governor
Daniel Tarullo said on Friday that he wants to see more evidence
of U.S. inflation rising back toward the central bank's 2
"From my point of view what is optimal right now is to look
to see actual evidence that the inflation rate would continue to
go up and be sustained at around the target because we've had so
many false up and downs in the past," Tarullo said in a
television interview with CNBC.
He added that he did not foreclose the possibility of a rate
increase this year.
