The Fed views the economy in just one narrow viewpoint which is how it reflects on investment bankers profits. The Fed likes to keep inflation down as it relates to costs of doing business and one of the ways is through fiscal policy designed to foster high unemployment which depresses wages. Since banks have such huge investments in commodities this year the Fed wants to make sure food prices goes up which increases the banks profits and is therefore good inflation. They just don't want the rest of us to know about it. Neither does the super wealthy mainstream media because they are getting a cut of that action as well.
