COLUMBIA, South Carolina
COLUMBIA, South Carolina Jan 8 (Reuters) - Richmond Federal Reserve Bank President Jeffrey Lacker said on Tuesday that he doesn't see a near-term quickening in U.S. inflation of "very large proportions," but that he was worried about the long-term impact of the Fed's policies.
"I see a risk of falling behind the curve not this year, but perhaps in 2014 and beyond," he told reporters after delivering a speech on the economy's prospects.
