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

That’s a great question. It’s not clear. It seems to be a wide range of institutions. I don’t know that we’ve seen a distinct pattern yet. Again, the sizes are pretty small as a percentage of the overall market. I’m not quite sure why it’s being used or whether the banks are using it. There must be some cash-management aspect for which some banks are using it; and perhaps some customers, for whatever reason, are interested in getting funds back early. But I think this is one thing that we need to understand better and one thing that we’ll be looking at in the coming months. It’s a good question. I wish I had a good answer for you.
