Fed Releases Broken Record: "Prepared To Increase Or Reduce QE", No Taper Mention - Full Redline Comparison

Fed Releases Broken Record: "Prepared To Increase Or Reduce QE", No Taper Mention - Full Redline Comparison
31 July 2013
, by Tyler Durden (zerohedge.com)

Excerpt:

The FOMC appears to have 'tweaked' its message to fit with Bernanke's confusing commentary and confirms that 'tapering is not tightening'.

    FED SAYS INFLATION 'PERSISTENTLY' BELOW 2% GOAL COULD POSE RISK

    FED SAYS ECONOMIC GROWTH WILL PICK UP FROM RECENT PACE

    FED REPEATS RATES 'EXCEPTIONALLY LOW' UNTIL JOBLESS AT 6.5%

    FED SAYS UNEMPLOYMENT WILL GRADUALLY DECLINE

    FED SAYS 'DOWNSIDE RISKS' DIMINISHED 'SINCE THE FALL'

    FED NOTES THAT MORTGAGE RATES HAVE RISEN SOMEWHAT

    FED SAYS IT IS PREPARED TO INCREASE OR REDUCE THE PACE OF PURCHASES


Bullard no longer dissenting, George is sole dissenter. Here is the key statement addition:

    The Committee recognizes that inflation persistently below its 2% objective could pose risks to economic performance...

i.e., the Fed now has an "out" if the economy tanks: it is due to inflation not hitting 2%, which the Fed can also blame the broken fiscal system on.

And don't forget, of course, that this is all pretense in the face of the inevitability of the taper due to refunding, political, and technical reasons.

As we noted earlier, it seems preferable to pretend the economy is strong enough to withstand less-easing (tightening) than admit the Fed is cornered.

Recall, the only chart that matters to the Fed structurally:

a 30% drop in funding, and thus monetization, needs for the US in Q4 2013 compared to when QEternity was launched:
