Fed's Harker: We're in a good place with rates

Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank President Patrick Harker argued that the Fed does not need to take rates lower right now because of some concerns about financial stability. Harker further explained that concerns about financial stability are in areas outside of the regulated sector.
