Join us as Dr. Ed Seifried reviews the state of the economy and interprets the latest Fed policies. We will see if the economy can keep moving forward, and if it can improve on the 3.7% growth rate generated during the second quarter. It’s not surprising that the FOMC did not pull the trigger on the much anticipated possibility of a rate hike at the September meeting. The committee cited international turmoil and lower than expected inflation as the main reasons for the reluctance to increase rates. Will the October meeting be the occasion for the first rate hike in almost a decade?

Dr. Ed Seifried will help you interpret the Bureau of Economic Analysis' October 29th release of the estimate of the nation's Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) based on 3rd quarter 2015 output of goods and services. He will point to clues that shed light on economic activity for the remainder of 2015 and early 2016 and what that indicates for financial institutions.
