Don't Judge a Book by its Title: "Beige Book"
By Cindy Ivanac-Lillig
Published eight times a year, the Beige Book provides a unique look at the nation's economy and the nuances that exist by region. It is published by the Federal Reserve System and is comprised of information submitted by all 12 Federal Reserve Banks. The report includes anecdotal information, gathered through interviews, and data captured through various bank reporting tools.
The Beige Book comes out today, April 13th! And for those readers that are teachers, the Cleveland Fed has some discussion questions/assignments designed to accompany the report for use in the classroom.
Thanks all -- and let me know if this is the first time you have looked at the not-so-beige "Beige Book."
