The Federal Reserve is on pace to crash the stock market to help alleviate the tensions of Democrats going into November elections. The Democrats “public enemy #1” is Inflation. The Federal Reserve has been sending warnings to the public, The Federal Reserve is watching the stock market and is “okay” with stocks crashing lower and lower as they’re hell bent on crushing inflation through words — but they need to take more aggressive action to annihilate consumer demand and spending.
The Federal Reserve is talking like Hawks, but acting as Doves.
If the Stock Market is cut in half from today’s values that will significantly impact consumer sentiment, consumer spending, consumer demand, reset the wealth effect, and reset the housing market and much more.
In addition to the above there must be a significant amount of colleterial damage in terms of wages, employment, loans, and more importantly extreme defaults on credit card payments, payments on loans, etc.
