American economist Larry Summers went on a Twitter rant Wednesday on why the Federal Reserve should not raise interest rates in September or even this year.
The Fed will announce Wednesday its latest policy decision later in the day, with Fed Chair Janet Yellen briefing the media at 2:30 p.m. ET. Market consensus is for the central bank to hold short-term rates steady and not lift again until December.
