ATLANTA (Reuters) - Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank President Dennis Lockhart said on Tuesday he had not yet made up his mind on whether further monetary easing is warranted.

“It’s a cost-benefit calculation to consider more monetary stimulus and someone like me has to do his best to really carefully weigh the costs and benefits,” Lockhart told reporters after a speech. “I‘m not finished with (that) processs.”
