Dudley said yesterday he’s more hopeful about the economy while indicating no change in bond buying. “While growth in 2013 has been disappointing, I believe a good case can be made that the pace of growth will pick up some in 2014 and then somewhat more in 2015,” Dudley said yesterday. “As growth picks up, I expect to see more substantial improvement in labor market conditions.”

That would be the highest since October 2009.
