    Interesting....as we watch Trump berate and publically insult Powell.


    Trump’s company could save millions if interest rates fall like he wants

    The Post notes that just a quarter-point reduction, which many investors now predict will occur in mid-September, could save Trump as much as $275,000 annually on just his Doral loan.

    Bloomberg News reported that every quarter-point reduction could save Trump $850,000 annually, which would create more than $3 million in annual savings if the Fed dropped rates a full percentage point as Trump has demanded.

    The Fed cut short-term rates by a quarter of a percentage point in July, the first such action in more than a decade.

    All big companies benefit.

    Quantitative Easing kept America out of recession throughout the Obama years.

    Interest rates being low saves everyone in debt a lot of money.

    The economy is booming. That is what you all are saying. Even in the Great Recession they didn’t drop interest rates by that much.

    We all would save money if interest rates fall.

    TDS is a serious mental illness. It takes a real sicko to think that a President that encourages lower interest is doing it for his own good.

    I remember that Democrat Jimmy Carter's 15% interest rates and it fucked everybody, businessmen and normal Americans alike.
