The Federal Reserve and the central bank are at it again.
But the Fed has been a source of much debate, especially among academics, and it’s also a source for concern among some who believe the Fed is trying to get a handle on the economy.
“I’m a bit concerned,” says George R. Pritchard, a professor at Columbia University and an expert on financial markets.
He has been following the Fed’s actions closely for the past few years.
Pritchard has written extensively about the Fed and its activities, including on his website, financialpeace.org.
Last year, he was among the first to warn that the Fed was going to be a force to reckon with, and he’s not the only one.
Rounding up the top 10 Fed economists on the Forbes 400 list of highest-paid economists, including their salaries, was Pritchett.
A professor at the University of Toronto, he has a PhD in economics and has written dozens of books, including The Financial Crisis: What Everyone Needs to Know.
He also is a regular on CNN, where he has been regularly asked questions about the financial crisis.
And he has written about the relationship between the Fed, the central banks and the U.S. economy, especially the economy’s recovery from the 2008-2009 financial crisis, which he said was one of the worst in history.
His main concern is the Fed trying to control the price of a dollar, a measure of how much the economy is consuming.
It’s like the price tag of a new movie: You know what they’re going to say?
The inflation rate.
That is what it says.
But I think there’s a lot of people out there who are thinking, “Well, if it’s going to take so much money to control inflation, why not just cut the money supply down to zero, or to 1 percent?”
Pritcheck said the Fed needs to stop trying to manipulate the inflation rate and start working with the Fed to get its act together.
I don’t think the Fed should be doing that at all, Pritchell said.
For example, he said, the Fed might be doing a little bit of stimulus spending, which would put more money into the economy, but the Fed could be doing something to stimulate the dollar, which could also put more dollars into the market.
The Fed also should stop pushing up interest rates, which Pritchel said could increase the cost of borrowing.
The Fed should start paying more for mortgages.
But most of all, the top Fed economists should focus on the real problem, Pregitchers worry.
They need to stop the Fed from doing what Pritchings are doing, he says.
There’s nothing wrong with cutting back on the number of people in the workforce, but cutting back in this way is not sustainable, said Pritschett.
He said cutting back too much could hurt the economy even more.
When the Fed does this, it’s not just an increase in inflation that happens, it could cause the stock market to crash, he added.
While the Fed continues to push up interest rate and inflation, it needs to be careful about cutting back to zero rates, he suggested.
This week, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said she doesn’t want to raise interest rates.
She told CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo that if the economy slows down too much, she’ll raise them, but only for a time, to help slow the economic slowdown.
Pritcher agrees with Yellen that we need to cut the number on workers, but thinks we should do that while keeping inflation low, so the economy can return to full employment. “
I don’t want to go up interest.”
Pritcher agrees with Yellen that we need to cut the number on workers, but thinks we should do that while keeping inflation low, so the economy can return to full employment.
To get a good idea of how long that will take, he compared it to how long it took to recover from the global financial crisis in the early 1990s.
What we need now is a little more time, Putchell said.
Inflation is a problem that’s going on now for about a year.
It’s very bad for the economy because it means the Fed wants to buy bonds instead of spending money, and the dollar is a store of value, so we can’t just buy more goods and services.
So if we get inflation below 2 percent, we’ll be okay, he concluded.
