Last week, the Fed’s Open Market Committee said the pace of the economic recovery had “slowed” and that growth “is likely to be more modest in the near term than had been anticipated.  The Fed announced it was going to take some of the payments it has received from CMBS bonds and other assets it purchased as part of the stimulus, and reinvest them in Treasuries – effectively holding down mid-term interest rates –  in an attempt to stimulate the economy further. The Fed noted that high unemployment, modest income growth, lower housing wealth and tight credit were holding back household spending.
