Fed could worsen the next recession

Ricchiuto argues the last three recessions in 1990-91, 2000-2001 and 2007-2009 stemmed from credit bubbles that the Fed inadvertently helped to form through lax monetary policy. It’s about to repeat that mistake again, he said.

A rate cut “will incite undesired risk taking by borrowers and deepen the next recession, which will unnecessarily increase the cost to society,” Ricchiuto told clients in a new research note.

Recessions are becoming deeper, he said, and the economy is taking longer to recover.


The Fed has created a market culture that feeds off of cheap money. This is not sustainable over the long haul. It encourages over-speculation and devalues the currency.
