In the United States, the authority to set interest rates is divided between the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve (Board) and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The Board decides on changes in discount rates after recommendations submitted by one or more of the regional Federal Reserve Banks. The FOMC decides on open market operations, including the desired levels of central bank money or the desired federal funds market rate.

Latest Updates

Fed officials viewed their interest-rate cut as an adjustment that would help counter the effects on the outlook of weak global growth and trade policy uncertainty while promoting a faster return of inflation to the central bank's target, minutes of the July meeting showed. Policymakers also noted that further policy action would be guided by incoming information and its implications for the economic outlook and that any appearance of following a preset course should be avoided.
