The Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee (FOMC) will announce their latest round of rate increases on Wednesday, September 21st, at 2pm EST. Will the members of the FOMC discuss the fact that the US debt load is now at a whopping 123% of GDP?? Or will the FOMC only discuss inflation in its deliberations?
The Fed is expected to raise the upper-bound of their target rate to 3.25%, a 75 basis point increase in a futile attempt to cool inflation. Yet the rampant spending by Biden, Pelosi and Schumer (3 of the 4 Horsemen of the Economic Apocalypse) has raised the Federal Debt to GDP ratio to 123%. Even more disturbing, M2 Money Velocity (GDP/M2 Money) is near the all-time low. Meaning that rampant Federal spending is doing little to increase GDP.
Now for the worse news! Federal debt held by the public is expected to rise to 185% of GDP in 2052.
I feel like I am watching the movie “Lifeforce” where The Fed tries to breath life into an economy without killing it.
