I donÂ´t know whether some of ET members recalling the FED cutting rates in former times just after weekends in light of bad NFP numbers ? Has it been in the 90Â´s or the new millenium - I donÂ´t remember exactly anymore. Fact is, pressure on FED to ease is culminating in politicianÂ´s and former FED governorÂ´s demand to "react". => ``I don't think the Fed can possibly afford to overlook the fact that the economy is weakening,'' said former Fed Governor Lyle Gramley, now a senior economic adviser at Stanford Group Co. in Washington. Representative Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat who heads a congressional committee that oversees the Federal Reserve, called on policy makers to cut interest rates after employers reduced payrolls in August. `To ease or not to ease its key interest rate is no longer the question for the Fed,'' Democratic Representative Carolyn Maloney of New York, chairman of the House subcommittee on financial institutions and consumer credit, said in a statement. ``The question now is how soon and by how much?'' So, how soon willl it be ?
