“I‘m not surprised by market volatility, markets are manic depressive mechanisms,” Fisher, President of the Dallas Fed, said in a speech at the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF).

He added monetary stimulus in Japan, the United States or Europe will not work unless the economy is restructured.
