Fed ties stimulus to jobs, inflation in unprecedented steps to bolster economy

The Washington Post reports:
The Federal Reserve announced Wednesday that it will take unprecedented steps to bolster the economy, saying it will continue to stimulate growth until the unemployment rate falls to 6.5 percent or the inflation rate reaches 2.5 percent. It was a historic move that for the first time explicitly spells out the Fed’s goals for the nation’s economy and how it will respond to changing conditions.
Great moments in central planning!
