The Federal Reserve released the minutes from last month’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on Wednesday (pdf). The central bank says it does not see much evidence that broad-based inflationary pressures were easing.

She also wrote the book “Fed Up: An Insider’s Take on Why the Federal Reserve Is Bad for America.”
