Evening Reading - November 3, 2021

It's night time in America, which means it is time for another edition of Shacknews Evening Reading.


Good evening, Shacknews, it's night time, which means it's time for Evening Reading. Let's officially close out our day of posting. Please take a look.

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

The Federal Reserve to reduce the monthly pace of asset purchases

You can read the Federal Reserve statement here. The article does a great job of showing you what lines were from the previous statement from September and what new additions have been added to November's statement. See the critical part on tapering in the quote below.

In light of the substantial further progress the economy has made toward the Committee's goals since last December, the Committee decided to begin reducing the monthly pace of its net asset purchases by $10 billion for Treasury securities and $5 billion for agency mortgage-backed securities. Beginning later this month, the Committee will increase its holdings of Treasury securities by at least $70 billion per month and of agency mortgage‑backed securities by at least $35 billion per month. Beginning in December, the Committee will increase its holdings of Treasury securities by at least $60 billion per month and of agency mortgage-backed securities by at least $30 billion per month. The Committee judges that similar reductions in the pace of net asset purchases will likely be appropriate each month, but it is prepared to adjust the pace of purchases if warranted by changes in the economic outlook.

It appears as if the Feds are pleased with how the economy is moving. What do you think about this? 

Your daily dose of sudoku

Disco Elysium is fantastic

Have you managed to play it yet? I was also a massive communist.

Dale is the ultimate ally

I love the relationship he has with John Redcorn, despite what John did.

A podcast about Halo 2?

Ya boy is definitely listening to this one.

Perhaps it's time to watch some old school Wallace and Gromit.
