White House economic adviser says he would like to see bolder Fed

WASHINGTON, Jan 29 (Reuters) - White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Wednesday that he would like the Federal Reserve to be bolder, hours after the U.S. central bank announced it would keep interest rates steady.

But, speaking to reporters at the White House, Kudlow also praised the Fed as moving in the right direction and said it had made the right decision on Wednesday. (Reporting by Jeff Mason; Writing by Makini Brice; editing by Tim Ahmann)
