Drew in Just my thoughts,

The Interest Rate Drama is Not Going Away Any Time Soon

If it seems like I’m sounding like a broken record writing about this so often, it’s only because it’s of critical importance to the long term health of the entire world economy. Your silly inquiries about penny stock nonsense can wait!

Okay, rant over. There’s nothing wrong with a good penny stock every now and then. But anyone who is not monitoring the situation with the US Federal Reserve and interest rates very closely is missing out on potential buying opportunities. You have to understand which way the wind is blowing with all this in order to be able to make smart predictions about the future for major stocks like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN,) Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL)

That being said, one of the less talked about aspects of this whole issue is why the central bank is so keen on using it’s powers to encourage credit growth. It’s taken as a given that this is standard operating procedure, but does it have to be? Maybe letting the free market take it's course would be a better way to go, overall. I know that in most situations when bureaucrats meddle too much they tend to screw things up. See: every government ever.

That’s why I would love to see some real smart technical people run for office. Sure, Bernie Sanders is great, but is he an engineer? Can he solve the most complex problems? I don’t think so, but I don’t portend to have the final solution. I just think it’s worth bringing up different viewpoints and staying as up to date as possible on this critical issue.
