Inside Report: Greenspan's Concerns
By Robert Novak

WASHINGTON -- Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, worried about excesses in real estate investment, has privately called on other federal regulators to take a closer look at imprudent speculation.

According to Fed sources, Greenspan has told the regulators that there is a limit to what the central bank's monetary policy can do in tamping down inflationary pressures. He has been in contact with the Comptroller of the Currency and the Office of Thrift Supervision, among other agencies.

A footnote: High officials in the Japanese Ministry of Finance recently commented privately that the vibrant U.S. home mortgage market is supporting an otherwise shaky global economy.
