Danielle Booth, a veteran of the Dallas Fed and author of Fed Up: An Insider's Take on Why the Federal Reserve is Bad for America, joins the show to consider whether—or if—the Fed can ever return to "normal" monetary policy. Raising interest rates might slow or even crash equity markets, while causing US debt service to spike. But leaving rates low keeps the US economy in zombie status, punishing savers and preventing bad debt and malinvestment from clearing. It's a no-win situation for new Fed Chair Jay Powell.
