Good Resources for Tough Times
The library’s Government Documents librarians have a number of resources to help you with your research into the economic situation. The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis sent us the following as good place to learn more.
Timeline of the Financial Crisis http://www.stlouisfed.org/timeline
We have posted a timeline of events and actions for the credit crisis. The
site has timeline of market events and Fed and other government agency
actions with links to the official source documents. The website also
contains links to relevant economic data and important government agency
websites. The site will be continually updated, along with additional
content features in the next few months.
The latest newsletter explains what it means when data is seasonally
On FRASER (http://fraser.stlouisfed.org) we have posted the Money Trust
Investigation hearings in the publications section. These were the
hearings following the Panic of 1907, and include the famous quote from
J.P. Morgan that he lends based on trust (see page 1084 from the December
19, 1912 hearing). In addition, FRASER historical documents collection
now has the Federal Open Market Committee minutes and policy documents
(1967-1992), and also the economic forecasts of FOMC members, starting in
2007. We have also posted the Federal Reserve Bulletins for the 1930’s.
