    Key Points

    Friday’s employment report clears the way for the Federal Reserve to raise short-term interest rates by a quarter-percentage point at its Dec. 15-16 policy meeting, ending seven years of near-zero interest rates.

    Payrolls increases averaged 218,000 on a monthly basis in the September-through-November stretch, more than enough to meet the Fed’s objectives.
