BEIGE BOOK: WINDOW ON MAIN STREET
BEIGE BOOK SUGGESTS CONTINUED MODEST ECONOMIC GROWTH
The latest edition of the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) Beige Book, released Wednesday,
May 31, 2017, continued to deliver a positive view of the U.S. economy. The Beige Book
is a qualitative assessment of the domestic economy and each of the 12 Fed districts
individually. The report is prepared eight times per year, ahead of each of the eight
Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meetings. We believe the Beige Book is best
interpreted by measuring how the key words change over time. The qualitative inputs for
the May 2017 Beige Book were collected in April 2017 through May 22, 2017.
