According to newly published transcripts of the central bank’s meetings in the run-up to and immediate aftermath of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a senior Fed official first flagged the issue at a policy meeting in April 2008. William Dudley expressed fears that banks were being dishonest in the way they were calculating the London interbank offered rate – a global benchmark interest rate used as the basis for trillions of pounds of loans and financial contracts. “There is considerable evidence that the official Libor fixing understates the rates paid by many banks for funding,” he said. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/libor-scandal/10654977/Fed-knew-about-Libor-rigging-in-2008.html Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
