Greenspan

Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said today that the central bank is being watchful for any signs that the economy is slowing sharply, suggesting that he may be willing to cut interest rates next year. As NPR's John Ydstie reports, stocks rallied sharply after Greenspan's speech. The Fed chairman indicated that he no longer sees higher inflation as the main threat to the economy.
