NEW YORK (Reuters) – A struggle by employers to fill jobs shows the U.S. economy is strong, along with the rise in housing and share values is very little symptom of a risky build-up in leverage inside the economic climate, the actual top from the New york city Federal Reserve Bank said on Wednesday.

“Employers now are incapable of fill job openings,” said Big apple Fed President John Williams, calling it a sign of an “overall strong economy…and also a boost for businesses to step up” with internships, training programs and school partnerships.

Even so, “We’re not seeing the amount of build-up in leverage within the overall economy which was pretty obvious within the mid-2000s,” said Williams, who became chief from the Los angeles Fed one month ago. “We’re not considering that form of risk-taking in the economic system right this moment, but we’re watching thoroughly,” he added.
