The US Has Serious Economic Problems Featuring Richard Wolff
Until two weeks ago, it was expected that the Fed would increase interest rates by no more than 0.5%. However, the rise today was 0.75% (that’s FIFTY PERCENT higher than expected). This is the largest single rise since 1994. This will affect business investment and make borrowing money much more expensive, while the interest rate is designed to fight soaring inflation.
