Reuters - Today's surprise cut by the Fed coupled with Bush's stimulus package last week is a clear indicator that economic momentum in the United States continues to decelerate as the housing sector, which helped pull the U.S. economy out of a recession following the tech bust in 2001, is slowly dragging the U.S. into a recession. The message from today's move is that the Fed will be aggressive in trying to limit the current slowdown and maintain some order in the global markets.
