Transcripts of the monetary policymaking body of the Federal Reserve from 2002–2008.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I have just two brief comments. The first one is that I share the concerns that are highlighted by President Yellen’s story with regard to IndyMac. Second, with regard to the TOP, the TSLF options program, I’m not opposed to it, but I must say the case for it seems to me to be distinctly underwhelming. As a factual matter, Bill Dudley said, well, there were quarter-end and year-end pressures in September and December but March and June went better. But, of course, in September and December we did not have the PDCF and the TSLF facilities in place, which we now have in place. So I would have to say that it’s not clear to me what we’re expecting to get from this additional option. Thank you.
