The Fed waited about a year too long to address inflation, and now it has no choice. It has to put a boot on the throat of the economy and hope it doesn't wreck it.

50/50.

We can address inflation or allow it to run out of control like in other countries. The problem is not that the Fed is addressing inflation now. The problem is all their actions that have caused the inflation.

They are going to try to reduce demand by killing job.

Congrats Cult…your leaders really fucked us hard.

Its literally what Powell said. They want to lower demand by softening the labor market.

THIS MEANS PEOPLE ARE GOING TO LOSE THEIR JOBS.

Wake up idiots.

They unsuccessfully tried that in 2000. They popped the clutch on interest rates to tame inflation and it stalled the economy. Luckily, it only lasted a few years.

To get the inflation numbers they want, the recession is going to skirt falling into a depression and will last out to at least '25.

The problem is printing 80 trillion dollars in the last 15 years.

As I said.
Yes, and the fact that the fed, with their rate increases, are trying to cool the economy as well as pull back all that cash.

It's going to get dicey over the next 18 months.

Sure but this was predicted for years. The Fed knew they were doing this.

Joe Potatohead is so damn stupid it is pathetic.

His massive government spending and environmental wacko bullshit that ran up the cost of energy have created massive inflation. The penalty for curing runaway inflation is high interest rate and recession.

Obama warned everybody that Joe Potatohead would fuck up everything and he did. Worst President this country ever had. That is saying a lot when the runners up were Obama and Carter.

Anybody that voted for him is an idiot.
