Fed Chair Yellen speaks, but some believe her term ends if Donald Trump wins

Donald Trump and Janet Yellen


Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen spoke today and some have concerns about her:

September 28, 2016

U.S. banks are well capitalized, but they remain challenged by weak interest income, said Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen in prepared testimony on Wednesday.

Yellen is speaking as part of her semi-annual testimony before the House Financial Services Committee about financial regulation on Wednesday. Investors will be also watching Yellen’s comments closely for clues about any potential changes to the timing of the next rate hike. …

Yellen’s testimony follows the Federal Reserve’s decision to refrain from hiking the federal funds rate in September. Last week, the Fed decided to keep rates at 0.25 percent to 0.5 percent, rather than raising rates for what have been the first time this year. …

Meanwhile, the CME Group’s FedWatch tool pegs the implied odds of a hike in November at 8.3 percent and the odds of an increase the following month at 56.4 percent. http://www.cnbc.com/2016/09/28/feds-janet-yellen-banks-well-capitalized-despite-weak-interest-income.html

Discussing the present and future of the embattled hedge fund industry, Tiger Management’s Julian Robertson – one of the most prominent names in the field – said that hedge funds are facing “the most difficult time I’ve ever seen in the business” his investing career (observing that “there are a lot of people squeezing shorts”), and warned that the days of charging hefty fees may be over.

““That type of business hasn’t worked lately, and it’s a tough business,” Robertson, 84, said Tuesday on Bloomberg Surveillance in New York. “It’s tougher to be a hedge fund investor than ever before.” …

“High interest rates are going to encourage savings, and I think we desperately need savings. Take a widow: they don’t know what to do with the money. There is no way they can do anything with it unless they go into stocks. I think forced equity investing creates the bubble.”

When asked who do you blame for this mess, the legendary hedge fund investor had one name: Janet Yellen, who Robertson says “is unwilling to see the American public taking pain at all and because of that I think she is creating a serious bubble where serious pain is going to come.”

What happens then: “If we have that bubble burst, you’re not going to make any money in the stock market unless you’re short and unless you’re in some sort of hedge fund.”  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-28/julian-robertson-janet-yellen-has-created-serious-bubble-and-pain-coming

Well, Janet Yellen has continued policies in order to keep interest rates artificially low, and she knows it. She has helped create a bubble that will burst. And ultimately, that burst will be worse than what billionaire Julian Robertson seems to believe.

At this stage if interest rates are allowed to rise this could impact the economy, and if they rise enough, make it impossible for the US government to pay interest on its debt. The timing of the possible increase in rates in December certainly seems political.

Various ones believe that if Donald Trump becomes the next President of the United States that Janet Yellen will not remain in her position:

If Trump wins, ‘Yellen would resign fairly quickly’: Economist

September 27, 2016

Judging by the candidate’s recent comments, a Donald Trump administration would not be hospitable to the current Federal Reserve makeup.

Consequently, should the Republican win, it would create pressure on the central bank’s command structure — so much so that Chair Janet Yellen would be inclined to resign, according to one analysis of the increasingly tense situation.

“If Donald Trump wins November’s presidential election, there is now a clear possibility that Fed Chair Janet Yellen would resign almost immediately, perhaps even before the mid-December (Federal Open Market Committee) meeting,” Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, a London-based global forecasting firm, said in a note. “It is hard to see how she could continue in her position until her current term expires in early 2018.”

The speculation comes amid a fresh round of criticism the outspoken New York businessman has lobbed at the Fed.

In a Sept. 12 CNBC appearance, Trump blasted the Fed for being political and said Yellen herself should be “ashamed.” http://www.cnbc.com/2016/09/27/if-donald-trump-wins-janet-yellen-would-resign-fairly-quickly-economist-paul-ashworth-says.html

Is this just another rant from Donald Trump or is there maybe something to this?

Notice something else that was in the news today:

“There’s A Real Problem Here” – Did Fed’s Plosser Just Admit Trump Is Right About Yellen?

September 28, 2016

Former Philly Fed President Charles Plosser got a lot off his chest this morning during a Bloomberg TV interview. Decrying that central bankers “wring their hands all the time,” Plosser noted that The Fed was very “concerned about credibility,” and was “pretty good at conjuring up reasons not to act.”

His mutinous discussion then concluded, sounding very Trumpian, by noting that The Fed “shouldn’t be afraid a recession might come,” exclaiming “there’s a real problem here” with The Fed. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-28/theres-real-problem-here-did-feds-plosser-just-admit-trump-right-about-yellen

Janet Yellen had hinted about raising interest rates last December, but as of this instant, still has not done so. She knows that it would be safer in the long-run for the economy to do so (see http://www.nbcnews.com/business/economy/feds-yellen-testifies-economy-strong-enough-handle-rate-hike-n473756)–but some think she wants to wait until such an increase will not hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances of being elected the next President of the United States.

In the past several years, it has become clearer that the US Justice Department, as well as its Internal Revenue Service, has taken steps that certainly seem to be motivated by politics.

I do not believe that the Federal Reserve is immune from doing so as well. While, publicly the Federal Reserve has not voiced a presidential candidate preference, one would think that with Donald Trump’s occasional anti-Wall Street rhetoric (as well as anti-Fed rhetoric), that they may not want him elected (Hillary Clinton, too, has made anti-Wall Street rhetoric, but her history of financial ties to Wall Street have made many consider that she is much more likely to support Wall Street views than Donald Trump).

Several actions that the US Federal Reserve has taken during the time of the Obama Administration have been biblically inappropriate (Isaiah 1:22; Habakkuk 2:6) and will contribute to the end of the USA (Habakkuk 2:2-8).

America’s Day of Reckoning 2017 Dollar Collapse? Economist James Dale Davidson says that a financial bloodbath will hit the USA and there is nothing that Washington can do to stop it. He claims that at least 57 nations have gotten together to dethrone the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. He claims this can happen any day or in a few months. He mentions China, Russia, the AIIB, and gold. He claims his track record in predicting massive shifts in the past should assure people that he is right about this. He claims that there will be massive unemployment, near elimination of social security benefits, and more. Is James Dale Davidson possibly right on any of this? Dr. Thiel goes over many of his claims and explains what the Bible shows related to the coming collapse of the US dollar. This is a video.
Can the Bilderberg Group Affect 2017 and Beyond?
The infamous Bilderberg Group met in Dresden, Germany from June 9-12 in 2016. This super-secretive group has been meeting since 1954 and has admitted to some subjects it would cover, but blocked out cell phone reception and forbid coverage of the discussions by the media. This is considered THE meeting to be part of for the elites who are working for a global-type of government. It is by invitation only. They are working towards their version of the New World Order as opposed to the good news of the Kingdom of God. At least one top leader apparently attended to try to get the Bilderberg Group’s support for a bid to become the next Secretary-General of the United Nations to replace Ban ki-Moon, whose term ends 31 December 2016. This is a video.
Collapse of the Euro and Dollar? War in 2020? Larry Edelson of Money and Markets described aspects of current economic difficulties and explained why he felt matters would get a lot worse.
