Trump forces Fed to lower interest rates. Good idea?
Stock market loves it, up over 240+ points. But who does it really benefit and who does it hurt! Again 99% of people just want to make interest on their meager savings.

If we have the highest stock market ever, why lower it?

Boy, if the economy tanks, no interest rates left to lower to save it.,,,

Nobody tells The Fed what they can & cannot do....they own this world.
Hello fellow debt slave!

"Because right now in 2019, LEFT VS RIGHT is a Litmus test.
The left is obviously the side with a much lower IQ, poor genetics, are mostly mentally deranged and or bi-sexual.
They are a cult run by a cult and have no fucking clue how the world works and who is in control of their fates.."

It's a great idea.

He should abolish the fed altogether but we know that won't happen.

If the money keeps flowing at low interest the economy keeps moving. Trump should force negative interest on them and make them pay the national debt. The price to pay to exist in the USA.

 Quoting: MyPillow

the fed will be uncreated.
There Can Be NO Peace in the Heart or Progress in the Mind unless one falls wholeheartedly in love with Truth and IDEALS of Eternal Realities.

Mankind is on the march toward a new and unrevealed planetary destiny.


"MY SPIRIT, YOU ARE OMNIPOTENT. YOUR NAME IS HOLY. MAY YOUR REALM BE INCARNATE IN ME. MAY YOUR POWER REVEAL ITSELF WITHIN ME, ON EARTH AND IN THE HEAVEN. GIVE ME TODAY MY DAILY BREAD, AND THUS, LET ME RECOGNIZE MY TRANSGRESSIONS AND ERRORS, AND I SHALL RECOGNIZE THE TRUTH. AND DO NOT LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION AND CONFUSION, BUT DELIVER ME FROM ERROR. FOR YOURS IS THE REALM WITHIN ME AND THE POWER AND THE KNOWLEDGE FOREVER,
AMEN.


Wisdom is not given, it is earned, and experience is the bestower.

Rejoice, for the world of ABSOLUTE TRANSPARENCY approaches, and decisions will be made according to the purity of your motives, for the eye of the Divine is an all-seeing eye, capable of glimpsing every flutter of the soul, knowing every yearning of your being and – incredible though it may seem – supporting every aspect of your own DIVINE PLAN.


God-consciousness, as it is experienced by an evolving mortal of the realms, must consist of three varying factors, three differential levels of reality realization. There is first the mind consciousness—the comprehension of the idea of God. Then follows the soul consciousness—the realization of the ideal of God. Last, dawns the spirit consciousness—the realization of the spirit reality of God. By the unification of these factors of the divine realization, no matter how incomplete, the mortal personality at all times overspreads all conscious levels with a realization of the personality of God.

the registered number of this world out of 5.6 Trillion evolutionary worlds bearing Human life.. is 5,342,482,337,666. There is nothing evil about 666. Just IGNORANCE and mind controlling.

Re: Trump forces Fed to lower interest rates. Good idea?
Cheap money isn't a good thing for the economy, it's a good thing for stocks. It allows corporations to borrow cheap and buy back their stocks to boost the price.

But sucking capital out from the real economy into the casino on wall street isn't good for mainstreet. It's funny how this used to be a conspiracy website and people understood the lies spread by wall street, lies that said they were the creator of prosperity.

The capital markets were never ever the creator or driver of an economy, they are supposed to act as a means of capital formation and price discovery. They are neither now, they are rigged up distorted, bloated obese abominations of all that is evil about this system of crony capitalism we mistakenly identify as 'free markets'. None of this is free you're all paying with your very lives.

Re: Trump forces Fed to lower interest rates. Good idea?
The "Fed" maintained the lowest rates ever during the Obama administration to prop up the economy, and artificially inflate the numbers.

As soon as Trump was elected, they raised the rates to try to trash the market/economy and blame Trump, but that has failed.

Keeping the rates artificially low, however, is not a good thing.

What should happen is that the Federal Reserve should be dissolved, and the responsibility put back in the hands of Congress, where it **LEGALLY** belongs.
