Ada Evening News (Newspaper) - November 20, 1967, Ada, Oklahoma British Pound devaluation causes Federal Reserve Board to take action Washington a the Federal Reserve boards discount rate moved up a notch today in what officials described As an Effort to protect the Dollar in the Wake of the British Pound devaluation. The Rise from 4 to 4% per cent is identical to one put into effect on dec. 5, 1965, but that was for a different reason to Stem inflation. It triggered a year of tight Money. This time however the move is designed to prevent a heavy flow of dollars overseas in search of higher interest rates. Its expected to have Little immediate effect on consumer interest rates in this country. When it devalued the Pound on saturday from $2.80 to $2.40, Britain also raised its discount rate from 6% to 8 per cent. The . Discount rate is the interest commercial Banks must pay the Federal Reserve for Money they borrow from the system. Other rates Are pegged upward from it. In this Case however the Board is bringing its rate More in line with interest rates elsewhere in the world Economy rather Tran tracking new ground. Interest rates generally Are at their highest level in almost half a Century. But some officials said the higher discount could tend in the Long run toward an increase in rates Consumers pay for Loans. In this connection it could have an anti inflationary effect but officials emphasized that would be Only a Side effect. The Federal Reserve acted at an emergency saturday night meeting and its decision was announced sunday. There was no immediate reaction from the White House. A statement by Treasury Secretary Henry h. Fowler said nothing about the discount rate and mentioned worldwide cooperation to help the British. He expressed Confidence the United kingdom would achieve its objective of improved Competition in world markets. But chairman Wright Batman. A Texas of the House banking committee a frequent critic of Federal Reserve Board policy said of the discount rate Rise a i done to like it. The people Are fed up with crushing interest Patman said the Board used the devaluation of the Pound As an excuse to raise the rate. The boards action is effective today at to of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. Banks at Philadelphia and St. Louis Are expected to follow suit soon. Officials said the action is a in tended As a demonstration that the United states is going to do what it can to maintain die Dollar in International a this serves notice that the nation is not willing to let dollars flow out of Here Willy Dilly a one source said in describing the move As a a modest precautionary a Rise in the discount rate from 4 to a per cent on dec. 6, 1965, coupled with other tight Money policies sent interest rates last year to a 40-year High. The discount rate was returned to 4 per cent last april after interest rates and inflationary pressure had subsided. Since then however some interest rates have risen even higher than they did last year there was no indication in sundays announcement whether the increase would trigger another round of tight Money. This would depend on other actions the Board might take in ensuing weeks. Banks have borrowed Little Money from the Federal Reserve this year mainly because of the easy credit policy. 64th year no. 216 the sooner cynic reckons women can keep a secret just As Well As men can. It s just that if takes More of them to do it.
