Federal Reserve Issues FOMC Statement & Holds Steady on Intrest Rates

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/20/2019 11:53 AM
Washington, DC...Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in January indicates that the labor market remains strong but that growth of economic activity has slowed from its solid rate in the fourth quarter. Payroll employment was little changed in February, but job gains have been solid, on average, in recent months, and the unemployment rate has remained low. Recent indicators point to slower growth of household spending and business fixed investment in the first quarter. On a 12-month basis, overall inflation has declined, largely as a result of lower energy prices; inflation for items other than food and energy remains near 2 percent. On balance, market-based measures of inflation compensation have remained low in recent months, and survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed.

Murphys, CA...We have a few favorite days covering our area and Irish Day is always one of those. We look at it as not only an entertainment event but also a barometer on how our local tourism economy is doing and how it might do for this year. One of the things that all of us need to be thankful for is that we live in an area that people want to visit. Tourism generates over a billion dollars a year for our coverage area. Many of our local businesses would not exist without the revenue our guests and second home owners bring. Some business owners have told us that over 50% of their revenue is from visitors.
