Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker on Friday, 21 February 2014, said the 2008 Federal Open Market Committee transcripts released earlier in the day show "me and several other consumers of economic research grappling with some very difficult policy decisions." In prepared comments at Arizona State, he said there wasn't enough discussion during the crisis about specific models of banking and financial markets that there could have been, and there wasn't enough discussion about long-term consequences. Lacker said he still opposes the Fed's credit market interventions and said he remains "deeply skeptical about the advisability of those actions." Speaking of the market for asset-backed commercial paper, he said markets were responding in a plausibly efficient manner to significant revisions in expectations about the underlying economic fundamentals. Lacker also said the Fed's emergency lending program simply reallocated credit and was not like the "lender of last resort" that Henry Thornton and Walter Bagehot wrote about in the 1800s.
