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

I don’t have a single problem with not telling anybody that. In fact, my own view is that that’s the sensible thing to do. Let’s see how it feels to us first before we go telling the world that’s what we’re doing. There are, however, different opinions about how to deal with the outside world among those of us at this table. Should we have an understanding about that?
