Mexico's central bank more effective than Fed, Fisher says

Feb 13 (Reuters) - Dallas Federal Reserve President Richard Fisher, who will step down from his post next month after a decade on the job, said Friday he rates Mexico’s government and central bank higher than the same institutions in Washington.

“Fiscal policy in the United States is a joke,” Fisher said in San Antonio, repeating his long-held view that the U.S. economy would be in much better shape if politicians in Washington fixed regulatory and tax roadblocks to growth. “(Mexican billionaire) Carlos Slim is a serious structural obstacle. But Mexico has a far more effective Senate and House and far more effective central bank. Who would have thought that.” (Reporting by Jim Forsyth in San Antonio; writing by Ann Saphir; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
