Name: Neel Kashkari

Summary: Politics nothing to do with curbing big banks: Fed's Kashkari: "Kashkari was less specific on the question of interest rates, saying markets should focus less on the views of individual Fed officials and more on the central bank's policy-making committee. He backed the committee's expectation of "gradual" rate hikes and 2 percent inflation over "the medium term," adding he was concerned about low inflation in most major economies."
