You can't pin down Jeremy Stein. To begin with, he's not for or against anything. Also, he's had gymnastics rings installed above the Fed's conference tables, and which of his colleagues is going to go up there and get him?

"I see the need to be more accommodative. Basically, I appreciate that," he said. "On the other hand, I'm pretty sensitive to the costs…."

Mr. Stein was an undergraduate at Princeton, earned an economics Ph.D. at MIT, and is a Harvard professor. The laid-back son of Elias Stein, an accomplished Princeton mathematician, Mr. Stein was co-captain of Princeton's men's gymnastics team, specializing in the rings.
