Barack Obama is getting a number of critical report cards about his foreign and domestic policies lately — signs that America is tiring of his presidency.
Jeremy Stein, a member of the Federal Reserve Board, announced Thursday that he plans to resign next month to return to Harvard University, creating more turnover on the seven-member board.
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen made clear Monday that she thinks the still-subpar U.S. job market will continue to need the help of low interest rates "for some time."
Federal Reserve chairmen are experts at talking up a storm without providing even a sprinkle of information. The Fed's new leader, Janet Yellen, is no exception. She says she'll consider "a wide range of information" to determine the central bank's policies in the days ahead. Whatever that means.
Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen briefed the country Wednesday on the Federal Reserve's plans for the economy's problem-plagued recovery, sending Wall Street into a swoon
The Federal Reserve Wednesday said it will continue easing its stimulus program for the economy, cutting its purchases of U.S. Treasury and mortgage bonds by another $10 billion a month.
March 18 is the first day of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, commonly referred to as "March Madness."
The Great Snow of '14 freed Janet Yellen from her obligation to testify before Congress for a second day, and it's just as well. More talk would have been redundant. The gist of her tenure as chairman of the Federal Reserve, as she sees it, is clear.
Janet Yellen, in her first appearance before Congress as the new chair of the Federal Reserve, sparked a major rally in global financial markets Tuesday by pledging to stick with her predecessor Ben S. Bernanke’s plan to gradually end the easy-money policies put in place during the recession.
With the Senate's approval Monday of Janet Yellen to become the first female Federal Reserve chair at the end of the month, she takes on the difficult mission of smoothly ending the unprecedented $4 trillion of stimulus programs launched by her predecessor, Ben S. Bernanke.
The Senate Monday voted 56 to 27 to confirm Federal Reserve Board vice chairman Janet Yellen as the next chairman, succeeding Ben S. Bernanke when he departs Jan. 30.
Leading up to Janet Yellen's Jan. 6 confirmation vote, the Federal Reserve recently announced that it will taper back its bond-buying program, known as quantitative easing. This was encouraging news for inflation hawks, if barely so.
Here at home, Janet Yellen, in her first monetary policy address as the head of the Federal Reserve Board, said the labor markets are still weak, and that it will likely take two years or more before the United States fully recovers from its recession.
She expressed grave concern that the economy's 6.7 percent unemployment rate was still significantly above the jobless level the Fed considers normal.
