Unelected FOMC says...

A “few” among the central bank’s 17 governors and regional bank presidents said tighter credit may be warranted this year, while a “few others noted that exceptional policy accommodation could be appropriate beyond 2011,” the Federal Open Market Committee said in the minutes, released yesterday in Washington.

Several FOMC members “indicated, in light of recent developments, that the risks to their forecasts of inflation had shifted somewhat to the upside,” the minutes said.

Fed Reserve musses w/ Your Interest Rates! Continually!

---------------- Federal Reserve System (the Fed) ----------------

------------ Federal Open Market Committee (FMOC) ------------

Please consider a more descriptive title for your "Unelected FOMC forum." Many new comers know not of what you write...

For those of you fearing interest rate hikes... please do. The Fed musses about interest rates all day long. Real damage is done when they finally make up their collective mind.

Please consider improving your title in the hope that more will come to know our concern about how folks are affected by these rascallions (1)... & their musings.

"Unelected" applies to most folks, most of the time... Does not specify much in a title. You could be more specific by stating: "Appointed Bureaucrat." But, I surmise that would not raise many eyebrows.

Alas, you all may have some respite... as they are deeply confused... Federal Open Market Committee (FMOC) ever attempting to collude & conclude what interest rate to charge you all.

Thanks for the suggestions

You're right, I shouldn't assume everybody knows about the FOMC.

How about "Federal Reserve currency manipulators look to screw middle class once again" for a title?

I'm open to suggestions on this :-)

No. Too offensive. Proper ladies would cover their eyes.

So, let us consider a title to lead folks to gather 'round. As they settle in, begin your telling...

  • Fed lost interest rate. Reward!
  • Fed Reserve musses w/ Your Interest Rates!
  • Fed Confused? What interest? What rate?
  • Fed Alert! Interest rate musing.
  • Fed FMOC wonders: Who will pay? How much?
  • Fed FMOC Rates? Hold 'em or fold?
  • Fed F-Moc stuck in rut! 0%

Round 'em up, roll 'em out...
Loan 'em up, loan 'em out... RAWHIDE!

As you go forward, be mindful of good leaders. Wary of bad.

Draw the best. Open shop. Be wary of titles & nonsense that keep them away. Write up a brief introduction. Reward them for listening to your tale.

Use what is helpful. Leave the rest for others to pick-n-pull.

A hard rain a coming. Gentlemen throw down their overcoat, that the ladies walk across the muddy liquidity, w/o fuss...

River basins are flooding. We must keep steady rein. Lest we all get wet, steady your reins... Guide your team to higher ground. Lest we all get lost, coax your best leader to take the lead. You seldom hear of an Alaskan dog sled team losing their way.

Reign of empires... rise & fall... the last few hundred years all had to do with paper promises unkempt.

Double checked my nephew's Fed-Speak Decoder Ring. Eureka!

"Eureka!" I say. By Jiminy, read through your post all the way to the end. With a twitch, I sensed what those rascals are fixing to do... I pulled my nephew's decoder ring out of my top desk cub-hole just to double check the Fed Double-Speak. Sure as the "Star Spangled Banner's Red Glare!" the answer glared back at me:

    "With facts & figures, it could probably be shown that those bankers have no idea what they are suppose to do with all their piles of new cash. None. Further, they are interest rating'ly confused about how much to charge us for what we just gave them... our wealth." - Mark Twain, 2011 - on bewitched Central Bankers forecasting interest rates with black & white smoke signals
