Join us as Dr. Ed Seifried presents and interprets the October 30th Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Advance Estimate Report issued by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The Fed has cut rates by 0.50% over the course of the last two Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meetings. While the reasons for those cuts are manifold, the main reason is the fear that our record-breaking economic expansion is coming to its end. It will be interesting to see if these preemptive rate cuts have had an impact on economic growth.

In addition, Dr. Ed will interpret the results of all the FOMC meetings held so far in 2019, with an emphasis on the October 29-30 meeting. A few Fed watchers have suggested that the Fed may go beyond rate cuts at this meeting and actually revive its quantitative easing (QE) policy and expand its balance sheet through the addition of security purchases.
