Borrowed money is cheap and easy to get. Too easy. That means too many dollars in the economy, chasing after the same goods and services. That drives up the prices of the goods and services. That's called inflation, which, if not closely managed, will assuredly drive the economy into a recession.

Rate hikes are the medicine that staves off the disease of inflation and recession. It might not taste so good, but its far better than the alternative.

Now you know.
>>
>>983181
?

Does .2% yoy inflation warrant that analysis?

Inflation doesn't cause recessions unless it's 4-5% yoy. No one expects that will ever happen again.

We're just afraid of deflation.

Yellen should wait till March, but now all their credibility rests on this hike so they'll do it.
I don't expect another hike till September. 7 years of 0% come to an end.

Cheap money and a lack of decent alternatives to invest in has driven bubbles in all sorts of assets. Higher rates are an attempt to rein some of those in, rather than have them burst again.

Duh. And it needs to stay that way. Ever heard of preventive medicine? Preventing the disease is always better than curing it.

>Of course they intervene in the markets--it's part of their job.
Nope. They watch the markets, they forecast the markets, they model the markets, they promote the stability of the markets, they warn about the markets ... but they don't directly intervene in the markets. Even in the broadest exercise of its powers, the most the Fed has ever done is make an emergency loan to a major market player.

The only "market" the Fed actually operates in is the money market.

>>983340

Because banks throw a shitfit on the market every time they might be raised, and it's unsustainable how low they are right now so we might as well just raise them regardless of whether or not people are throwing financial temper tantrums.

>Duh. And it needs to stay that way. Ever heard of preventive medicine? Preventing the disease is always better than curing it.
Many economists agree that 3-4% inflation would not be an unhealthy rate because it would drive down real wages and act as a wealth transfer to debtors. Basically higher inflation would ignite the economy.

>Nope. They watch the markets, they forecast the markets, they model the markets, they promote the stability of the markets, they warn about the markets ... but they don't directly intervene in the markets.
Wrong. The Fed purchases Treasury securities as well as asset-backed securities, especially mortgage-backed securities. These purchases are made in the private market, ie the Fed directly intervenes in the market.
>>
>>983345
Are you implying money markets aren't the backbone to equities? If so, you should go back to school and learn about how firms raise capital in money markets to fund operations which raise or lower the pricing of their equity offerings, either directly or indirectly. Faggot.

An interesting theory, but even without investigation I can tell it's horse shit.

1. Drive down real wages? That's the LAST thing the U.S. economy needs. Have you seen a chart of domestic wages lately?

2. Wealth transfer to debtors? You do know that debts are denominated in nominal dollars, not real. If you owe $100 to the bank, the fact that inflation makes your hundred dollars worth less doesn't change the fact that you owe exactly $100 to the bank. Indeed, it just makes it harder for you to come up with the $100 to pay off your debt.

You're citing some seriously dubious-sounding bullshit here. If you have some reputable sources to cite, I'd be glad to read them. But until then, you sound like a wack job.
>>
>>983345
Inflation being low is directly related to a stagnant economy. Name any major economy that has grown more than 2.5% for 5 years with low inflation. Economies inflate when they are growing fast.
We have the problem of Japan's secular stagnation on our hands.

The Fed intervenes in wayyyyyyy more than the money market since 2008.
Nowadays they have a "direct" effect on treasury rates, inflation, commodities, and assets.
>>
>>983397
Treasury securities and derivative securities (any sort of ABS) are not money market investment instruments. I don't know what you think you've learned from watching Wolf of Wall Street and coming onto this board but you're wasting your time.

>Are you implying money markets aren't the backbone to equities?
I'm stating (not implying) that they're not the same markets. Which is a fact.

The money market and the equity market are completely interconnected.

The Fed intervenes directly in the money market, and because of how interconnected the two markets are it essentially intervenes directly into the equity market.

The Fed looks at everyone's money fleeing to safe assets, so they intervene in the money market to force people into risky assets in search of returns. These risky assets are the equity market, which explains the 250% return in stocks.

Securitized debt is a monetary instrument. They convert future cash flows into current liquidity. I.e., they're monetary tools in the hands of the Fed. Nothing more;nothing less.

I know. I helped invent them.

I'd encourage you to leave /biz/ and read up about how inflation effects the economy. This is literally ECON 101 material. Once you've learned some basic economics then you might be able to contribute worthwhile posts.

>you're trying to equate
The inflation rate and GDP growth are directly correlated. Do you not know this? Inflation happens because people think their money will buy less in the future so they spend more. This leads to more investment and consumption in turn. Why else is the Fed chasing after 2% inflation?

>great logic
Inflation makes it easier for debtors to pay off their debt.
The fact their $100 is buying less doesn't mean their employer suddenly is paying them less because inflation is higher.

You don't understand this and that makes you a fool not worth responding to anymore.

1. Calm down spaz. Let me reply before splurging more nonsense. It makes the conversation flow more naturally.

2. Interconnected =//= same. Strawman elsewhere, kid.

And if you think the Fed tries to command the direction of the equity markets, you're insanely delusional. The equity markets have their own internal compass. At most, the Fed clears the glidepath.

There's no point in arguing with you because you're wrong but are either (1) trolling or (2) too stubborn to admit it. Here are some facts:
>you argued that ABS are money market securities. They are not.
>you argued that unexpected inflation is not a wealth transfer from creditors to debtors. It is.
>you argued that the Fed only intervenes in the money market. This is false.

tl;dr you're full of shit
>>
>>983426
M8....you're wrong. It's backwards.

You lent me $100 dollars in year one. I earn $100 dollars a year for my job.

Inflation is 50%. So my wages are adjusted for inflation at the end of the year. I now earn 150 dollars. I pay you off and have 50 dollars left over. If inflation was 0, I would have nothing left over at the end of the year.

Inflation helps borrowers.
>>
>>983431
>you argued that ABS are money market securities. They are not.
No, I said they're liquidity instruments. Which, in the hands of the Fed, are monetary tools.

>you argued that unexpected inflation is not a wealth transfer from creditors to debtors. It is.
No, it is not. ANDI explained why. While you have yet to give a cogent response or provide any support for your assertion.

>you argued that the Fed only intervenes in the money market. This is false.
No, this is not false And so far, no one has cited a single example of Fed action that wasn't direct participation in the money markets. Therefore, the burden of production remains in your court.

>tl;dr you're full of shit

They pretty much are, if they weren't, real median wages would have decreased since 1970 which they objectively have not.

Every company I've worked for has adjusted my wages for inflation at the end of the year, if they didn't, employees would leave.
>>
>>983446
I don't disagree that there's a relationship between real wages and inflation (especially over long testing periods) but to state that they move "pretty much" in lockstep is ignorant.

Anecdotal evidence isn't scientific.

Because the money train will slip off the tracks if it goes too fast, after all it's made of paper not iron and if/when it does go off the tracks you're all worth nothing but gunpowder.

It's not even like they're hitting the brakes by raising rates, it's that they're coasting instead of stoking.

But you fucking burnouts don't even care about long-term adverse effects do you?

>Inflation being low is directly related to a stagnant economy.

No, it indicates a consolidating economy, something necessary to sustain boom cycles without incurring extended periods of stagnation.

A truly stagnant economy in a Keynesian system would have growth equal to inflation - the eventual result to which would be losing international market share, getting priced out of international trade and then suffering a collapse in currency value which for some reason doesn't count as inflation.

The inflation targets are more of an upper limit - if it's reached (in the USA in the midst of the current status-quo) the alarms get sounded and equity abandons ship towards less artificial economies until the cronies fuck themselves and come crawling back begging for the return of equity.

When rates are under 2% they don't determine the timing of when the bubble pops, this is because the difference between 1% rates and 2% is insignificant even though it's a 100% difference. Raising rates could actually extend a bubble because of the big bank takes little bank effect.

>>983271
Yeah, but higher rates historically are well over 5% and the money is still as hard as ever, the lack of inflation in the midst all the liberal handouts is proof of that.

We are undergoing an economic crisis that the Fed is now powerless to stop.

Interest rates this low for this long arguably damage the economy as now markets are reliant on rock bottom interest rates being the new normal. At the same time, inflation is way below target rates, hell in some months we suffer deflation which is unheard of in modern economics.

The Fed is simply unable to raise or lower rates to improve economic conditions. Trillions of dollars in QE were needed just to keep things stable. This is VERY BAD. What we are doing is not working. The Fed has done all they could and pulled out all the stops.

All of this boils down to the fact that the political process is completely deadlocked. The private sector is failing at providing decent investment, while any sort of new public spending is completely off limits. We need a serious public infrastructure plan more than ever.

Because wielding interest rates like the sword of damocles only works if you have somewhere to move them to. Do you think negative interest rates would be better than zero? do you think they'd be better than the pitiful .25% raise they're going to get at the end of the year? Get fucking real man. The stocks market is hiding some very real problems with the economy that are obvious as hell.
