What's the Fed's Number?

posted 10/12/2012 in General

Economic Commentary Highlights... 

  • The September 2012 employment report did little to change our view on the labor market, the overall economy, or on the outlook for the Federal Reserve's (Fed's) quantitative easing (QE) program.

  • The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes revealed that when discussing the labor market, FOMC members noted that "growth in employment had been disappointing."
  • In our view, markets (and the public) are likely to continue to clamor for more specifics and  transparency from the Fed.
