Reuters reports that the U.S. Federal Reserve allegedly accidentally published its plans online to raise interest rates by 0.25% this year.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Could they publish something that would raise the public’s interest rates in this boring news story?
2. Hey Fed Reserve, have any other plans for this year you’d like to announce long in advance? For example, what are you having for breakfast on December 1, 2015, and will inflation play a role in your decision, since you obviously think you can predict the future that far in advance?
3. When the Federal Reserve announced that the information was inadvertently published, why did they not say “Spoiler Alert!” Many of us have better things to do than read newsletters on the Federal Reserve Web Site and may have missed the news entirely if someone gave us a spoiler alert in their error announcement.
