The Federal Reserve staff of economists and researchers is supposedly there to serve the Fed Board of Governors; But they also have a rich readership of academics, Wall Streeters, and other econo-geeks.
Indeed, there is a divide in opinions over the end of Fed M3 reporting. The Wall Streeters and Fund managers like the clean data series and would like to see it continue; Some academics would also like it to stay. The Fed itself seems to think its not all that important.
I have my own favorite regional Fed pubs; One I never miss is Monetary Trends put out by Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis; The charts in it are terrific.
