Wendy,

This is a fascinating Bloomberg article on the FED's quarterly forecast reporting process. A lot of things at the FED are starting to change. Molasses moves faster. Dave

Snip:

As Janet Yellen seeks to forge a consensus on a new strategy for communicating the Federal Reserve’s intention to keep rates low, she can reach for a six-year-old tool: the Fed’s quarterly forecasts.

Policy makers plan to abandon their promise to hold interest rates near zero at least as long as unemployment remains above 6.5 percent, according to minutes of their January meeting. With the jobless rate dropping to 6.6 percent and the economy still in need of support from the Fed, the strategy is nearly obsolete.
