LONDON May 25 Safe-haven flows to the United
States triggered by concerns about the euro zone debt crisis
will be beneficial for the United States, St. Louis Federal
Reserve President James Bullard said on Tuesday.
At an economic seminar in London, he added that this would
help the U.S. economy achieve its growth forecasts for the next
few years, provided there was no "serious" contagion from debt
problems plaguing Greece.
"The U.S. will be an unwitting beneficiary from the crisis,
much as we were in the Asia crisis," he said.
"Even though it will not be the greatest for Europe ...
flight to safety will be good for the U.S."
