Michael Pento-Fed Trying to Maintain Illusion of Credibility
If the global economy is going down no matter what, why raise interest rates? Pento says, “Yellen has boxed herself into a corner . . . she wants to make people confident in the economy. She wants to fulfill that confidence by going off zero. . . . They are going off zero to maintain the illusion of credibility.”
So, if the global economy tanks in 2016, what will Fed Head Janet Yellen do then? Pento contends, “It doesn’t change the intractable motion towards a recession. So, she’s going to have to take back that interest rate hike. She goes back into QE sometime in 2016. . . . I think the U.S. dollar is really in jeopardy here because the ‘dot plots’ say we are going to be at 1.5%, and I don’t think we ever get there without completely flattening out the yield curve and sending the U.S. economy into a depression.
