Business - Yellen says U.S. job market still hampered, calls for `pragmatic` policy


In a speech at a central banking conference here, Yellen laid out in detail why she feels the unemployment rate alone is inadequate to evaluate the strength of the U.S. The jobless rate has fallen faster than expected, but Yellen said the economic disruption of the last five years has left millions of workers sidelined, discouraged, or stuck in part time jobs - facts that are not captured in the unemployment rate alone. Judging whether the economy is close to full employment is `complicated by ongoing shifts in the structure of the labor market and the possibility that the severe recession caused persistent changes in the labor market`s functioning,` Yellen said in the opening address at the Fed`s annual economic policy conference.

World - London`s FTSE ends week lower


London`s leading share index ended slightly lower on Friday in subdued trade before the long holiday weekend and after a major speech by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. In a speech to leading central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Yellen, who has kept Fed policy expansive due to perceived excess slack in the jobs market, gave no clear new signs for monetary policy. Alluding to the rising pressure from so-called inflation hawks inside and outside the Fed to begin tightening policy, she admitted that analyzing the data has been `especially challenging recently`. The hawks argue that the sharp fall of the jobless rate to 6.2 percent is a clear forerunner of inflation and want the Fed to move forward its timeline for an interest rate hike next year.

Business - Dynegy cuts exposure to wholesale power with deals worth $6.25 billion


Power company Dynegy Inc said on Friday that it would buy coal and gas power plants for $6.25 billion to increase its presence in two less regulated eastern U.S. Dynegy shares rose as much as 22.5 percent in early trading. The deals for select assets of Duke Energy Corp and Energy Capital Partners will nearly double Dynegy`s national generating capacity and allow the company to retail electricity in Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, increasing its exposure to the PJM and New England markets. Earlier this year, Wisconsin Energy Corp said it would buy Integrys Energy Group Inc for $5.71 billion about two months after Exelon Corp agreed to buy Pepco Holdings Inc for $6.83 billion to cut exposure to the wholesale power market.

Business - Yellen says job market still in recovery


By Howard Schneider JACKSON HOLE Wyo. (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen called for a `pragmatic` approach to U.S. In a speech at the Fed`s annual central banking conference, Yellen laid out in detail why she feels the unemployment rate alone was inadequate to evaluate the strength of the jobs market and why the central bank needed to move cautiously on raising rates. At the same time, she nodded to the concerns of some Fed officials who are growing uneasy with the sustained level of its monetary policy stimulus. Ahead of her comments, a number of other top Fed officials had pressed their case for an early hike in benchmark rates, which have been held near zero since December 2008.
