Federal Reserve issues FOMC statement

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 19, 2013

Federal Reserve Board and Federal Open Market Committee release economic projections from the June 18-19 FOMC meeting: “Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in May suggests that economic activity has been expanding at a moderate pace. Labor market conditions have shown further improvement in recent months, on balance, but the unemployment rate remains elevated. Household spending and business fixed investment advanced, and the housing sector has strengthened further, but fiscal policy is restraining economic growth. Partly reflecting transitory influences, inflation has been running below the Committee’s longer-run objective, but longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.”
