    Fed went too far by raising rates too much too fast. Backing it off a bit to where it should have been makes sense.

    Recessions are bad. They need to naturally happen every now and then. When you try to artificially prop up the economy it may hold off the inevitable for a year or 2 but the outcome will be worse.

    You mean like when they kept the rates artificially low for years under Obama?

    So the solution is to double down on a bad decision?

    The problem with keeping them low now is there’s no room to do anything when the economy finally tanks

    How can they lower rates when it's the strongest economy in the history of mankind?

    Because they know the house of cards is very close to crumbling and they need to prop it up for another 16 months

    We are in one of the longest stretches ever without a recession. It doesn’t much matter what’s done.

    Jerome powell seems to be a bad pick so far, so worried about the non existent inflation
