Federal Reserve's Beige Book Offers Boston-area economic snapshot

EPPR Director Mark Melnik comments on the report

From the Federal Reserve website: 

Commonly known as the Beige Book, this report is published eight times per year. Each Federal Reserve Bank gathers anecdotal information on current economic conditions in its District through reports from Bank and Branch directors and interviews with key business contacts, economists, market experts, and other sources. The Beige Book summarizes this information by District and sector. An overall summary of the twelve district reports is prepared by a designated Federal Reserve Bank on a rotating basis.

Our own Dr. Mark Melnik, director of the Economic & Public Policy Research group, was interviewed by WBUR radio in Boston about the region's economic state. Click below to hear the interview.
