Federal Reserve Chariman Jerome Powell just explained how this asset bubble will burst
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell laid out an aggressive new strategy aimed at getting millions of Americans back to work, signaling that the Fed will no longer raise the interest rates https://t.co/V93QcIidOb pic.twitter.com/FjGnGujtYQ— Reuters (@Reuters) August 27, 2020
In a huge shakeup to current monetary policy, the Fed announced that the central bank will no longer target 2% long-term inflation. It seems that the Federal Reserve believes deflation is the true risk to asset prices. “Many find it counterintuitive that the Fed would want to push up inflation,” Powell said. “However, inflation that is persistently too low can pose serious risks to the economy.” Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan told CNBC that he would be content with a inflation rate range around 2.25%-2.5%. The Federal Reserve is playing a dangerous game here, as they have never been able to rangle inflation when it gets out of hand. We will see if the deflationary pressures that exist due to the pandemic will change the outcome this time, but today's policy change is exactly what was needed to further inflate the asset bubbles in stocks, real estate, and some commodities like gold. Maybe this time stocks just go up forever?

I guess no one should be surprised by the propaganda machine that is COD fetishizing Ronald Reagan.
