Прошло очередное заседание Фед. Ставки срезали на 0.75%, вопреки ожиданиям снижения сразу на 1.00%. Кроме того, текст меморандума не только констатирует ухудшение дел в экономике, но и говорит о неясности инфляционных перспектив - и о том, что ФРС собирается в случае необходимости принимать меры против не только экономических рисков, но и угроз ценовой стабильности. Наконец, сразу 2 члена правления голосовали за ещё меньшее снижение ставок - главы ФРБ Далласа Фишер и Филадельфии Плоссер. Доу не сильно порадовался такому развитию событий - хотя пока не более того. Доллар даже немного подрос - золото упало ниже 1000. Полный текст меморандума Фед ниже.

For immediate release

The Federal Open Market Committee decided today to lower its target for the federal funds rate 75 basis points to 2-1/4 percent.

Recent information indicates that the outlook for economic activity has weakened further. Growth in consumer spending has slowed and labor markets have softened. Financial markets remain under considerable stress, and the tightening of credit conditions and the deepening of the housing contraction are likely to weigh on economic growth over the next few quarters.

Inflation has been elevated, and some indicators of inflation expectations have risen. The Committee expects inflation to moderate in coming quarters, reflecting a projected leveling-out of energy and other commodity prices and an easing of pressures on resource utilization. Still, uncertainty about the inflation outlook has increased. It will be necessary to continue to monitor inflation developments carefully.

Today’s policy action, combined with those taken earlier, including measures to foster market liquidity, should help to promote moderate growth over time and to mitigate the risks to economic activity. However, downside risks to growth remain. The Committee will act in a timely manner as needed to promote sustainable economic growth and price stability.

Voting for the FOMC monetary policy action were: Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman; Timothy F. Geithner, Vice Chairman; Donald L. Kohn; Randall S. Kroszner; Frederic S. Mishkin; Sandra Pianalto; Gary H. Stern; and Kevin M. Warsh. Voting against were Richard W. Fisher and Charles I. Plosser, who preferred less aggressive action at this meeting.

In a related action, the Board of Governors unanimously approved a 75-basis-point decrease in the discount rate to 2-1/2 percent. In taking this action, the Board approved the requests submitted by the Boards of Directors of the Federal Reserve Banks of Boston, New York, and San Francisco.
