3 rate cuts in a year is a recession measure. Why do that if the economy is supposedly booming?

Trump's Fed appointees don't know what the hell they're doing either.

10:42 - why should we believe you know what the fuck you're talking about? Or you, 11:01? I'm pretty certain neither of you has an undergrad degree, much less an advanced degree, in economics or finance. So, I would suggest you shut up and let the adults run the show and keep making cold calls in your sales job or whatever else you do that has absolutely nothing to do with finance or economics.

Rate cuts are to spur growth during recessionary periods. Econ 101.

But go ahead and attack the messengers.

It's what people do when they can't debate the facts.
