Ticking Time Bomb
"No, corporate debt is a massive problem, it’s a ticking time bomb that millions of workers get to pay for during the next recession. That’s not my hyperbole, no Sir, or have you already forgotten what Janet Yellen already told you?
“if the economy encounters a downturn, we could see a good deal of corporate distress. If corporations are in distress, they fire workers and cut back on investment spending. And I think that’s something that could make the next recession a deeper recession”.
No financial crisis in our lifetime when Fed chair, the next recession could be deeper thanks to extended corporate debt when not Fed chair. Funny that.
She knows and so does Jay Powell, he’s just busy keeping confidence up by telling you everything is fine and dandy. After all that’s precisely why he cut rates 3 times and expanded the Fed’s balance sheet by over $280B in 2.5 months. Cause that’s exactly what you do when the economy is in a good place."
