Federal Reserve officials have penciled in a gradual path for raising interest rates, but minutes of their last meeting may show increasing concern that the U.S. labor market is overheating. Scheduled for release at 2 p.m. in Washington on Wednesday, the minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee’s Oct. 31-Nov. 1 closed-door debate could harden investor expectations for a further tightening of monetary policy even though inflation remains below its 2 percent target.
Three quarters of 3% growth would be best run since 2005The U.S. economy is on track to post three straight quarters of at least 3 percent growth, the longest such streak since 2005 and a pace that could be sustained into next year if Congress passes a tax overhaul, White House chief economist Kevin Hassett said. Hassett, in an interview in Washington on Thursday, said he prefers the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s model, called GDPNow, for tracking gross domestic product.
President Donald Trump’s promised tax cut for the middle class comes with some extra baggage in the bill House Republicans are considering: a much larger tax cut for the top 1 percent. That’s not just a political talking point for Democrats who oppose the House bill. It’s the consensus from two recent independent analyses: one by the left-leaning Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy and the other by the right-leaning Tax Foundation.
@pkcapitol@Bencjacobs I don't understand the hate for Halperin. OK, people don't like the politics-as-sport coverage -- they'd rather read thoughtful policy essays at @ForeignAffairs and @BrookingsInst , right? And this propelled Trump not NBC's The Apprentice and @CNN 's uninterrupted rally coverage?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
