So the Fed’s ability to tighten is likely to be a lot more limited (without causing a major recession or depression) than it might appear – meaning that inflation (in anything other than assets) isn’t going to be brought under control any time soon:
But if the Fed actually tries to do that, borrowing costs for the US Treasury are going to go way up – and with a $30 trillion national debt, that is going to cause big problems:
One small silver lining to the Fed’s Catch-22 between interest rates and inflation: no matter how many excuses are cooked up in the White House Greasy Spoon Kitchen to avoid responsibility, no way are voters in November going to buy it’s not the Dems’ fault.
