Fed officials ponder new economic support

Policy-makers had a “sense that [more] accommodation may be appropriate before long,” the central bank said Tuesday.

In the minutes of its last policy-setting session, held Sept. 21, the Fed said officials discussed several approaches to aiding the economy but focused on buying additional longer-term Treasury securities and ways to nudge the public into expecting higher levels of inflation in the future.
