When the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee makes a statement, the words are very carefully chosen. This word cloud shows which words today's Federal Reserve statement uses most often -- words that are larger appear more often; those used less frequently are smaller. Note: We cut "committee" from the cloud data.

klafever624: Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee statement: Which words were used most? Inflation, committee, conditions, labor, economic, market, securities

As you can see, "inflation" was the word most used. Why do you think that is? What do you think this means for the economy in the coming weeks?
