Are you ready for 6 rate hikes


Recommended Posts

Again what the USA does is very relevant to what happens to us here in Canada.  The Federal Reserve has communicated that 6 rate hikes can easily be handled by the USA economy.  Knowing how much debt is held by Americans I think they will seriously be hurt by rate hikes.  And if we want or currency not to plummet in Canada we will have to follow America's lead.  So where does 6 rate hikes put you?

6 rate hikes will put me and everyone else in a world where a lot of negative things will be exacerbated.

Fighting inflation by increasing the cost of everything seems particularly counter-intuitive.  Like doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result.
