At Least Someone at the Fed Cares About the Dollar Thursday, April 17, 2008 1:56:00 PM New York, April 17th. Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher is being quoted on Dow Jones regarding more Fed easing as a remedy for the US's economic problems that "The answer, to be curt, is not to compound the bad by repeating the oft-prescribed remedy of inflating our way out of our predicament with a wing-and-a-prayer promise that it can always be reined in later," said in prepared remarks at a speech in Chicago. "It is for this reason that I have maintained a strong reluctance to further general monetary accommodation." Let's see if others on the FOMC feel the same way and begin backing away from their inflationary policies. ---------- He's been voting against the cuts for two straight Fed meetings, and he's ticked now as well. It's just too bad he doesn't run things.
