Instant Ben Bernanke: Who Needs the FOMC?

by Alex Stenback on September 21, 2006

Paul Kedrosky (one of our favorite bloggers over at Infectious Greed) has put together a funky little widget (Dubbed "Instant Ben") that generates a Federal Open Market Committee press release whenever you click on Chairman Bernanke’s Picture.  At the right – click to make big – is one of our results.

He’s got the FedSpeak down pat:

Although the timing and extent of that improvement remains uncertain,
the Committee perceives that over the next few minutes, at the very
least the upside and downside risks to the attainment of sustainable
growth are roughly equal. The Committee believes that, taken together,
the balance of risks to achieving its goals is weighted toward mild
growth for the next five minutes or so.
