Federal Reserve policymakers have not yet decided whether to raise interest rates next month, an influential governor at the U.S. central bank said Wednesday, appearing to push back on more hawkish comments the day before by a fellow U.S. official.The governor's unusual appearance on morning television came a day after a newspaper quoted Dennis Lockhart, president of the Atlanta Fed, saying it would take "significant deterioration" in the U.S. economy for him to not want to begin tightening monetary policy in September.Standard Chartered economist Thomas Costerg said the comments suggest some Fed centrists are still hesitating between hiking rates in September or at a meeting in December.
