Actually it DOES matter. If you are criticizing a response, I want to know the full context of that response. It makes no sense out of context. You are implying she had no reason to be concerned by what he said or how he said it, so prove it.


What did he say?

The rates would go up for everyone. Borrowers, lenders, and savers. The only ones who benefit from rate hikes will be lenders and savers.

Borrowing will definitely slow down, but it has to in order for savings to increase. Capital comes from savings. Using borrowed money as capital tends to force the market as a whole to over leverage. That's the situation we're in now.

If interest rates go back to where they are supposed to be it will wipe some people out, but then saving will become more commonplace and banks will be better capitalized in the future to ramp up lending again.


The people who will get hurt are those with a lot of debt tied to variable interest rates. IF you carry a lot of credit card debt, you are doomed. The elephant in the room is local, state, and federal governments and how they will pay back a lot of their debt in a higher rate environment.


This is spot on,

I personally know a few people that believe that credit is free money, I have tried to explain how it all works but honestly I would have better luck finding a needle in a haystack that is located in Somalia and I am viewing it with a telescope on Mars than getting through...

One thing I am very happy my parents taught me was to be a saver which at the time was unheard of as credit was offered everywhere (still is)...

Sh1t will indeed hit the fan when the rates go up and no doubt people will be asking what happened..

If they raise interest rates for savers is it the same interest rates for loaners etc


Isn't someone gonna get the sh*t end of the stick either way?


Or are they seperate interest rates?

I ask you, because you seem to be on the ball and are always a straight shooter.


What they raise is what's called the base rate. That's the rate for borrowing directly from the fed. The banks that act as middlemen for you then add/remove from that rate. But it's used to determine both savings and credit interest rates. So an increase in the savings rate will also means debt carries a higher rate.

The US has the Fed, does the EU have something similar?


European Central Bank



You taught me something new. Have a beer.


Don't mind if I do

And here's who is controlling all the worldwide central banks....

Lots of conspiracies about this outfit.

About the Basel Committee

The Basel Committee is the primary global standard-setter for the prudential regulation of banks and provides a forum for cooperation on banking supervisory matters. Its mandate is to strengthen the regulation, supervision and practices of banks worldwide with the purpose of enhancing financial stability. Mr Stefan Ingves, Governor of Sveriges Riksbank, is the chairman of the Basel Committee. He was appointed as Basel Committee chairman in July 2011 and has been reappointed until June 2017.

The Committee reports to the Group of Governors and Heads of Supervision (GHOS). The Committee seeks the endorsement of GHOS for its major decisions and its work programme.

If you've noticed, the only time Hillary speaks with real passion is when she's angry/jealous at what Trump does...

"Trump shouldn't have gone to Baton Rouge and got in everybody's way!"

"Trump shouldn't have met with Mexico's President and discussed U.S. Foreign Policy!"

"Trump shouldn't comment on Federal Reserve monetary policies!"

"Trump shouldn't run circles around his competitor, when she obviously has physical and mental is-shoes!"

Pretty much anyone in those positions agrees the rates need to go up, a lot. It's a 10 year plan with a rate increase every 3 months to get to where we need to be. That plan was supposed to start years ago and it never did (and they've since also extended it to a 20 year plan). It needs to happen.

He hasn't tweeted anything about The Fed.

But if he is serious in his rhetoric he will no doubt double down in the next few days and elaborate.



To be honest I think Clinton is wrong on this one, he has every right to bring up The Fed.

It's on a lot of people's minds in America and even if it's just lip service to the remaining RonPaulers he is well within his rights to go into it.

Hillary is just being cynical.

We should all be ashamed. She's the Democratic nominee using shady, unethical tactics to get it and democrats do nothing. Trump is hardly any better and he's the 'choice' main stream (corporate owned) media tells us.

I'm telling you, even Gary Johnson is better than both of them. I like Jill Stein much better yet...she's like a real person...heck I would even vote for the constitution party guy over those two.

Why would anyone vote for Hillary or Trump again? LOL

And even more on point, yes, we should be able to criticize the fed...presidents and congresspeople and senators and candidates should all be able to criticize the fed. If the market is that unstable so as to be unable to stand a soundbyte or two we have bigger issues going on.

That and they need to stop monetizing the debt.

But part of raising the rates is to re-absorb the excess currency out of the system.

Yup.

As we know, the Campaign needs to get as much heat as possible off the back of Hillary's lies.

They need a full basket of low hanging fruit for the debates.

If they screw it up, it's curtains for Hillary and many other Democrat candidates this year.

Gregory Maranino

Trump is good ethical person...
Gregory Maranino is a good ethical person...

Gregory has made daily vlogs about exposing the Fed shenanigans for over 6 years. I have watched regularly now because I wanted to time my equity liquidation right.

Very bright and well worth watching him.
His friends and associate's have the highest regard for his honesty and integrity.

She has her little shill Mark Cuban out there
as chicken little, the sky will fall if Trump is elected.

This tells us he is on point. When your opponents condemn
you strongly, you know your spot on.

As an aside, Goldman Sachs 1% employees have been
essentially banned, and warned not to donate to Trump.

Spot on.
