increasing its discount the interest it charges on loans to I financial from 5 5 percent to 6 percent The the first in more than three is effective immediate iy In a brief the Fed said its decision reflects the intent of the Federal Reserve to deal effectively and in a timely way with potential in flationary The last increase in the discount rate came on April when it moved from percent to y percent Since then the rate has been cut seven successive with the last reduction occurring a year ago on when it dropped from 6 percent to percent The boost in the discount rate was likely to push a variety of interest including mortgage higher in the weeks The announcement by the Fed on the discount rate was followed almost immediately by an nouncements by two large New York Chase Manhattan Bank and Chemical that they were rais ing their prime business lending rates onehalf percentage point to percent from The increase in the discount rate came after a threeweek slide in the value of the dollar on foreign curren cy Many analysts had ex pected the Fed would be forced to act to stabilize the falling dollar by pushing up Interest rates in the United Higher rates in this country make Investments more popular with who now hold a sizable percentage of U S This interest rate scenario is similar to what happened last spring when investor worries about inflation caused the dollar to decline on foreign exchange This led to a slump in bond markets that push ed interest rates sharply The Feds decision to raise the dis count rate svas approved on a 40 vote with two iHuird Martha Seeger and Robert absent The action was the first significant move the central bank has made since Greenspan replaced Paul Volcker as chairman on Aun 1 An increase in the discount rate is the most dramatic move the central bank can make to signal its mien lions to push rates higher as a way ol keeping a curt on inflationary pressures in the economy One of the major orces that has been pushing
