Given these threats, Ferguson said, "I think it is too early to have a strong conviction that the economy is reaching the end of this period of quite slow growth." "1 sense that in this economy we've got plenty of room" to lower interest rates further if necessary, Ferguson said in response to a question after his speech. In his remarks, Ferguson said in the current economic environment it remains uncertain how low interests have to go to restore healthy growth. The Fed's surprise rate cut this week, the second this year that came between regularly scheduled meetings, pushed the Dow Jones industrial average to its third biggest point gain Wednesday 399.10 points. Technology stocks extended their gains on Thursday In economic reports, the Labor Department said Thursday the number of newly laid- off workers filing for unemployment benefits declined by 10,000 last week to 385,000 after hitting a five-year high the previous week. Even with the improvement, the four-week moving average, which smoothes week-to-week fluctuations, rose to 382,250, the highest level since the week of April 13,1996. The weekly jobless claims report is being closely watched by economists for signs that layoffs have reached levels that could seriously dampen consumer spending. A Labor Department analyst said the Fed, as is customary, received an advance look at this week's jobless claims report on Wednesday, 24 hours before the report's public release. The Fed's conference call to vote on the rate change began at 8:30 a.m. EDT, 24 hours to the minute from the. public release time. Private economists said they viewed the small retreat in claims last week as an encouraging sign that the economy, while sluggish, has not entered a recession. "The labor market is weak but is not collapsing," said Karen Dexter, an economist at Merrill Lynch in New York. "Claims would need to rise into the mid-400,000 range before signaling a recession." Rising layoffs have already pushed unemployment, with the jobless rate rising to 4.3 percent in March, compared to the 30-year low of 3.9 percent reached during three months last year. FCC loosens networks' leash 3-1 vote will allow major networks to absorb WB or UPN By KALPANA SRINIVASAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The government gave the major TV networks permission Thursday to combine with upstarts WB or UPN, the first in what is expected to be a series of actions to ease media consolidation. Such decisions could ultimately affect the breadth of information Americans read, watch and hear More immediately, the decision by the Federal Communications Commission means Viacom, which merged with CBS last year, won't have to sell UPN. The FCC voted 3-1 to modify its restriction against one company owning two networks. Specifically the decision means one of the four major television networks — ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox — can scoop up either of the two smaller networks, UPN or WB. FCC officials noted that UPN — which has some of the top- rated shows among black audiences — serves minority viewers and letting it fail would actually reduce diversity on the airwaves. With more than 200 affiliates, UPN is home to programs such as "The Hughleys," "Moesha," "World Wrestling Federation Smackdown!" and "Star Trek: Voyager." Commissioner Gloria Tristani, the sole dissenting vote, said the action would "only further erode the already tenuous level of diversity on the airwaves." The commission kept in place a ban on any two of the four major networks merging. Prior regulations make it possible for the big four to acquire fledgling networks created after 1996. Although limited in scope, Thursday's ruling could be a portent of what's to come, say observers. This commission "is likely to be very receptive to lifting or eliminating many of the media ownership rules that have protected free speech and democracy for 60 years," said Andrew MARKETS Jay Schwartzman of the public interest firm Media Access Project, which opposes the commission's decision. FCC Chairman Michael Powell has indicated his preference for easing regulations to let the marketplace work. That view is in line with a number of other Bush administration initiatives. "Diversity is an important communications ideal," Powell said Thursday, but he said policy-makers should recognize that sometimes financial interest — and not just government regulations — can drive corporations to promote diversity For example, television providers who rely on advertis;- ing revenue have an incentive to offer programming that consumers want, he said. In May the commission wiU begin evaluating whether to modify a rule that prohibits a company from owning a broadcast station and daily newspaper in the same locale. A final decision could be months away, but any major easing of that restriction would be significant, experts say MONEY RATES Daily money rates Irom Tfie Associated Press.
