As ready for supply
Thanks for that sort introduction, and for the chance to talk to you all right now. As all the time, my remarks mirror my very own views and never essentially these of the Federal Reserve Financial institution of New York or the Federal Reserve System.
It has been nearly precisely a yr since I final spoke about LIBOR transition. My hope is that I will not be speaking about LIBOR once more subsequent September as a result of there will not be any must say extra about it. We’ll see.

Now, that will appear to some like a very long time away nonetheless, and so it is not but time to make a final move via the cabin amassing all of the stray espresso cups and soda cans. And I do not disagree that June 2023 is a crucial date; by then, this aircraft must be safely landed and parked on the gate for an on-time arrival.
