NEW YORK - Happy 5th birthday, bull market.
WASHINGTON - U.S. productivity grew at an even slower annual rate than previously thought in the final three months of last year.
WASHINGTON - A Federal Reserve survey shows severe weather held back economic growth in much of the nation from January through early February. Even so, conditions strengthened in most U.S. regions, thanks to slight gains in areas such as employment and commercial real estate.
WASHINGTON - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen says the Fed has made much progress in repairing the damage caused by the financial crisis and recession but cautions that more work must be done.
WASHINGTON - Americans spent more in January, but the increase came from a surge in spending on heating bills during the harsh winter. Spending in areas such as autos and clothing declined.
WASHINGTON - The U.S. economy grew at a 2.4 percent annual rate last quarter, sharply less than first thought, in part because consumers didn't spend as much as initially estimated.
NEW YORK - A British man accused of hacking into U.S. government computer networks was charged in a new indictment unsealed Thursday with infiltrating the Federal Reserve's computers.
WASHINGTON - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen noted Thursday that recent economic data have pointed to weaker-than-expected gains in consumer spending and job growth. She said the Fed will be watching to see whether the slowdown proves only a temporary blip caused by severe winter weather.
WASHINGTON - A surprisingly strong pace of new-home sales last month has boosted hopes that the spring buying season will be solid enough to lift the overall economy.
HONG KONG - Hong Kong's economic growth will pick up this year but remain under its long-term average, the Asian business center's finance chief predicted on Wednesday, warning that the global outlook is uncertain as the U.S. scales back monetary stimulus.
NEW YORK - Ben Bernanke, who stepped down last month after eight years as chairman of the Federal Reserve, is planning a memoir.
WASHINGTON - Business economists are almost equally divided over whether the Federal Reserve will pare its bond purchases at the current pace through year's end or pause to let the economy recover further.
WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve agonized in 2008 over how far to go to stop a financial crisis that threatened to cause a recession and at times struggled to recognize its speed and magnitude.
WASHINGTON - U.S. consumer prices barely rose last month as a sharp increase in energy costs was offset by cheaper clothing, cars and air fares. The figures indicate inflation remains mild.
WASHINGTON - Federal Reserve officials agreed at their January meeting that further gradual reductions in their stimulus would be appropriate as long as the economy keeps improving.
WASHINGTON - Since the Great Recession ended 4½ years ago, Americans have struggled with high unemployment, static pay and a slow economy. Yet they've had one thing in their favor: low inflation.
WASHINGTON - The cost of producing goods and services in the United States rose slightly in January, with higher food prices partly offset by cheaper gas. Overall, inflation remains mild.
WASHINGTON - U.S. home construction fell in January for a second month but the weakness in both months reflected severe winter weather in many parts of the country. The expectation is that housing will deliver another year of solid gains, helped by an improving economy.
WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve will require the largest foreign banks operating in the United States to hold higher levels of capital reserves to protect against potential loan losses.
DES MOINES, Iowa - The Federal Reserve Bank said the value of Iowa's farmland dropped slightly in the final months of 2013, and some expect those declines to continue.
WASHINGTON - The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland has chosen a longtime Fed economist as its next president.
CLEVELAND - A top official of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia has been appointed president and CEO of the Cleveland Fed.
KANSAS CITY, Missouri - The venerated barbecue that's put Kansas City on so many maps may not be available free of charge, but the city does have other entertainment options that don't require money - or sauce. There's even one venue where you can walk out with a free bag of U.S. currency. From the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art to the city's largest brewery, the former cow town has plenty for the thrifty, or those who'd rather spend their money on a slab at Bryant's barbecue restaurant.
WASHINGTON - Janet Yellen pursued a simple strategy Tuesday for handling a battery of lawmakers who came armed with skepticism about the Federal Reserve.
