  • More dove comments from Fed's Evans
    Fed’s Evans urges that “very significant amounts” of accommodation be added to the system, noting “little conflict” between Fed inflation and jobs goals. Adding that current condition still “aren’t much different” from the recession.
    This will be hotly contested by other Fed voters, notably Fisher and Plosser, who are hawks. And Kocherlakota who said Tuesday that, "It is unlikely that the data in September will warrant adding still more accommodation,"

  • Fed's Beige Book pretty boring
    Nothing earth shattering from the beige book. Services improved in most areas but manufacturing still weak. Fed noted slowing growth and generally lower prices (except for some input and retail prices). Consumer spending higher (marginally) and residential real estate weak.

    Frankly, with the hawks (Plosser/Fisher) being fairly vocal against accomodation I see this report as taking some easing off the table. The doves are going to have a hard sell if they want to do more than an operation twist.
