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

Mr. Chairman, I am going to have to leave the call, and I just want to say before I go that I think a lot of good questions have been raised here, and I just wouldn’t rush into this. I think the 84-day term seems to be long in this environment of troubled banks; and frankly, it is not very clear that either of these proposals is really going to buy us a lot. I am also sensitive to the announcement effects, and I am not quite sure what the announcement effects would be. So I would prefer to think about it longer before we go ahead and approve this. Thanks.
