The Federal Reserve Board’s website now features convenient access to historical documents of the Federal Open Market Committee for the years 1978 through 2002. Historical Greenbooks and Bluebooks have been available to researchers and others, upon request, for some time. Posting historical documents on the Board’s website makes them more accessible to the public.

Nice move. The Fed’s rise to power has made them much less secretive and they have been opening a door to the public. Now anyone on the internet can check out the Fed here with an eye to history from their institutional perception. Ignacio Lopez de Loyola would be proud of the public acceptance.
