    @Jack V Savage this reminds me of that Hill editorial.

    Low interest rates to recover from a recession = "fed-driven economy"

    Negative interest rates at peak of economy = sound economic policy

    Are you still screaming into the void about the fed being illegal? Knock yourself out I guess.

    Yeah...it's not like Republicans proposed a bill to require the Fed to adhere to the Taylor Rule and increase interest rates during the GFC recovery....but yet, years earlier, Paul Ryan threw a fit and Republicans sent an open letter to the Fed opposing quantitative easing policies that would help effectuate the Taylor Rule's negative interest rates at the recession's outset.

    Zero interest rates. People will be lining up to deposit money so the bank can hold it for free.
    What a dum dum.
    I guess Trump has a bunch of loan payments coming up or maybe he is worried Prince Jared will not be able to make his billion dollar nut on his overleveraged building.

    Fak negative interest rates would push property prices even higher.

    It's not like he has the ability to set rates, but still just the thought of it. I remember reading about negative rates a long time ago it seems like a bad idea to me, as someone that likes to save.

    Oh yes....you are far too smart to be deceived. People with absolute power and money really love you, they care about you. Greed doesn't exist. Everything they tell you is for your own good. Sleep....sleeeeep.

    How about any Republicans not named Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Sean Hannity or Paul Ryan?
    The TDF, AKA the Trump Defense Force will move the Goal Posts again after your post. They will require another 20 Republicans and they have to be quoted in right wing sources, with their hands on the Bible and then maybe the TDF will buy it.

    Cruz is arguing to abolish the Fed, there, not against any specific inflation rate policy. He also represents the wing of libertarian outsiders when he voices that economic strategy (as owed to Paul).
    Yeah, this is an example, but this is also an example of why Kasich is regarded as a centrist. He criticizes an artificially low interest rate policy is incentivizing investment for the wealthy, but not necessarily translating into higher wages (despite that the cost of everything is going up anyway).
    I'm going to assume that you simply didn't read this link.

    Agreed, it is devaluing Sweden’s currency compared to the dollar and the euro, while it increases the risk for the housing bubble to burst.

    I got a crazy idea, and this is just spitballing so hear me out...but anyone think Trump is trying to influence the Fed into artificially, and perhaps detrimentally, propping up the economy with some random "keep it good" date in mind...let's call it November 2020? Seems possible.
