Regional Fed Banks Publications, Research and Data

The Federal Reserve staff of economists and researchers is supposedly there to serve the Fed Board of Governors; But they also have a rich readership of academics, Wall Streeters, and other econo-geeks.

Indeed, there is a divide in opinions over the end of Fed M3 reporting. The Wall Streeters and Fund managers like the clean data series and would like to see it continue; Some academics would also like it to stay. The Fed itself seems to think its not all that important.

I have my own favorite regional Fed pubs; One I never miss is Monetary Trends put out by Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis; The charts in it are terrific.

So as a follow up to our last Fed data post, here’s a list of the 12 Regional Federal Reserve Banks and the links to each of their publications and data resource pages:

    I’d add one more to the list: Financial Engineering
    News: http://www.fenews.com. There’s a special report in
    this issue about Frontiers of FE and Risk Management
    but it also includes an article by Jack Treynor about
    the Fed REserve Board and Interest Rates…
    and other relevant ones.

    Among Fed publications, I’m sort of partial to “Economic Trends” from Cleveland. I also like “The Region” from Minneapolis.

    You should also mention the “Fed in Print” search engine that allows you to search all of the Fed’s publications and working papers.
