FED
FED: Q&A continues:
Q: Change regulatory framework to help resolve funding issues?
- A: Most important thing is to get the level of reserves back up. They move up
and down with volatility, with TOMOs and bill purchases they are on a path to
reach early Sep levels. [again mentions surprise that banks did not deploy
liquidity in repo market - why not?] Don't think Fed would lower requirements on
liquidity, capital. Would only take action if we could do so without sacrificing
financial stability.
Q: Re disinflation pressures globally.
- A: Have watched situation in Japan / Europe, note significant disinflationary
pressures from around the world. Don't think we're exempt from those pressures,
so we are committed to anchoring US inflation expectations. Once expectations
move down, inflation moves down, rates move down. We think the right thing to do
is to do what we can now to anchor at a level consistent with 2%.
