Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
The Federal Open Market Committee announced that it would extend the average maturity of its holdings of securities, buying $400 billion in 6- to 30-year Treasuries by the end of June 2012 and selling an equal amount of Treasuries with maturities of 3 years or less. The FOMC said that “this program should put downward pressure on longer-term interest rates and help make broader financial conditions more accommodative.”
The FOMC also announced that, “to support conditions in mortgage markets,” it would reinvest principal payments for its holdings of agency debt (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) and mortgage-backed securities in mortgage-backed securities (instead of into Treasuries, as it had been doing currently). The FOMC noted that “there are significant downside risks to the economic outlook, including strains in global financial markets,” and said it expected inflation to settle at levels at or below what is consistent with its dual mandate. In its operating directive, the NY-Fed said that 29% of the purchases would be in the 20- to 30-year range, more than anticipated, pushing long-term interest rates down sharply. «Read the rest of this article»

A column by State Senator Roy Herron on the requirement that Tennessee residents display a state approved Photo ID before being allowed to cast their ballot in Tennessee elections.
When my 94-year-old mother Mary was born, women were not allowed to vote. But then Tennessee ratified the 19th Amendment, and for seven decades Mother has voted faithfully. This year, my Republican colleagues in the legislature took away that right when they made it harder for her — and as many as 675,000 other Tennesseans — to continue to vote.
Ironically, legislators from the party that supposedly favors less government and more privacy passed a law requiring my mother to obtain a “big-government” photo identity card in order to vote. When the law goes into effect with the March 2012 presidential primary elections, poll workers will no longer accept her voter registration card as sufficient proof of identity. «Read the rest of this article»
