#Fedgibberish (Federal Reserve + gibberish)

Wikipedia: Federal Reserve System
The Federal Reserve System (also known as the Federal Reserve or simply the Fed) is the central banking system of the United States. It was created on December 23, 1913, with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, after a series of financial panics (particularly the panic of 1907) led to the desire for central control of the monetary system in order to alleviate financial crises. Over the years, events such as the Great Depression in the 1930s and the Great Recession during the 2000s, have led to the expansion of the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System.

Recently on our Twitter feed, @michaellebowitz, we introduced the hashtag #fedgibberish.

The purpose was to tag Federal Reserve members’ comments that highlight desperate efforts to rationalize their inane monetary policy in the post-financial crisis era. This past week there were two quotes by Fed members and one by the head of the European Central Bank (ECB) which were highly deserving of the tag. We present them below, with commentary, to help you understand the predicament the Fed and other central banks face.
(...)
As we put the finishing touches on this commentary, New York Federal Reserve President Bill Dudley pointed out that the longer-run effects of disasters like the recent hurricanes actually lifts economic activity. Our reply to this absurd comment is simple: #fedgibberish
