Ten years later, 'unbowed' New Orleans reflects on Katrina

A brass band performs in Jackson Square in New Orleans, LouisianaBy Kathy Finn and Edward McAllister NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - From the Lower Ninth Ward to the Superdome, New Orleans launched a day of events on Saturday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, paying tribute to its victims and homage to the city's resilience in the face of disaster. Dignitaries made speeches to honor the 1,500 who died, brass bands marched through the streets and neighbors gathered for block parties across the city, where the mood shifted in turns from somber to reflective to celebratory. While residents and visitors alike said it was difficult to deny the rebound that New Orleans has made, there was also recognition that the poorest areas, like the Lower Ninth, have lagged.

Shannon Miles was picked up for questioning early on Saturday following the Friday night shooting, which was captured on surveillance video, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters. Earlier on Saturday, Hickman had linked the shooting of deputy Darren Goforth, who was white, to anti-police rhetoric across the country in the wake of deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of white officers. "We have not been able to extract any details regarding a motive at this point," Hickman added. Posted Saturday, August 29, 2015 8:32 pm EDT

Fed's Fischer sees inflation rebound, allowing gradual rate hikes

Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer speaks during a TV interview during the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City's annual Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium in WyomingU.S. inflation will likely rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates gradually, Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said on Saturday in a speech careful not to overreact to a possible Chinese slowdown. The influential U.S. central banker was circumspect whether he would prefer to raise rates from near zero at a much-anticipated policy meeting on Sept. 16-17. The cautious confidence from Fischer, as well as from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney who spoke at a conference alongside him, suggests at least two major central banks are poised to look beyond a week of financial-market turmoil brought on by fears that China's economy is faltering.

Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the opening bell in New YorkAfter a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday’s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China’s economy.

Raising U.S. inflation target won't help much now: researchers

Detail from the front of the United States Federal Reserve Board building is shown in WashingtonThe Federal Reserve could have cut short the Great Recession by a year if it had set a 4 percent inflation target in 1984, but raising the target now would probably do little to help the economy, researchers said on Saturday. Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren and Minneapolis Fed President Narayana Kocherlakota recently have floated raising the U.S. central bank's current 2 percent inflation target to give it more room to cut rates during economic downturns. The idea has not gained much traction in part because the Fed does not want to be seen as fickle about its commitments.
