Clinton May Name Ferguson to Fed


President Clinton plans to name Roger Ferguson, a partner with consulting firm McKinsey & Co., to the Federal Reserve Board if he passes background checks, a U.S. official said. The official, who asked not to be named, said Ferguson is expected to be proposed as a nominee to the central bank board along with University of Michigan economist Edward Gramlich, whose candidacy was disclosed by another U.S. official on Thursday.
