Debate: “Will We Have a Hard Landing?”
Featuring Matthew Miskin, Co-Chief Investment Strategist at John Hancock Investment Management.
We have had one of the quickest and sharpest Fed rate hikes in history with federal funds yielding 5% – 5.25%, on the high side historically. Increasing rates is considered a “tightening” policy and is designed to slow the economy for one reason or another – the most recent justification due to fears of runaway inflation. As our guest Matt mentioned, it takes time for those yields to work its way through the market but there is no doubt it is having an effect. Simply put, consumers and companies alike now need to pay more interest when borrowing money. Will the pressure of higher borrowing rates result in a recession? And will that recession be quick and painless or long and painful? To find out, tune in to my and Matt’s wide ranging conversation exploring the reasons for and various possibilities of a recession.
