Federal Open Market Committee
  • Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in July suggests that economic activity has been expanding at a moderate pace.

Household spending and business fixed investment advanced, and the housing sector has been strengthening, but mortgage rates have risen further and fiscal policy is restraining economic growth.
