Clarksville, TN – As you may recall, I had requested that Mayor McMillan establish a committee or review of how the city determined and funded non-profit requests shortly after she took office. The amounts given and the organizations that received funding was historically a closed effort. The same basic groups kept receiving the funding.

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The FOMC noted that the economic recovery is continuing, but “somewhat more slowly” than had been expected.

In his post-FOMC press briefing, Fed Chairman Bernanke said that while Fed policymakers expects growth to pick up into 2012, “we don’t have a precise read on why this slower pace of growth is persisting.” The FOMC lower its expectations of GDP growth for this year (2.7%-2.9%) and next (3.3%-3.7%).
