OTTAWA (Reuters) - Richmond Federal Reserve President Thomas Barkin on Tuesday said there was a risk the United States could talk itself into a recession but added he saw no sign of this happening yet.

Barkin made his comments during an event at the University of Ottawa. He is not currently a voter on the Fed’s interest rate-setting panel.
