Minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee, October 23-24, 2012
For release at 2:00 p.m. EST
The Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Open Market Committee on Wednesday released the attached minutes of the Committee meeting held on October 23-24, 2012.
The minutes for each regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee ordinarily are made available three weeks after the day of the policy decision and subsequently are published in the Board's Annual Report. The descriptions of economic and financial conditions contained in these minutes are based solely on the information that was available to the Committee at the time of the meeting.
The minutes of the meeting scheduled December 11-12, 2012 will be released on Thursday January 3, 2013, one day later than usual, because of the proximity of the ordinary release date to the New Year's holiday.
FOMC minutes can be viewed on the Board's website at http://www.federalreserve.gov/monetarypolicy/fomccalendars.htm.
