What the Federal Reserve's rate cut decision means

  • Published on Jun 19, 2019
  • The Federal Reserve held rates steady but raised the prospect for two potential rates cuts this year, as policy makers continue to weigh the right time to act amid concerns over President Donald Trump's trade policies.
    Jerome Powell, the president's choice to run the world's most influential central bank, is facing considerable pressure to keep the US economy steady. Concerns are intensifying that Trump's tariff strategy may end up hurting global growth.
    The decision also comes as Trump continues to criticize Powell, suggesting he might still be willing to try to demote the country's top central banker.
    CNN's Paula Newton talks to Eventshares Chief Investment Officer Ben Phillips and former JPMorgan Chase chief economist Anthony Chan about the impact on the markets and pending trade deals.

    There will always be uncertainty in every single government. This time right now things are good. Most people don't want to see it I am a Democrat and I am so happy with what's going on right now. Making me wonder what side I should really be on.

    The economy is slowing down worldwide, and the Fed doesn't have that much to cut, because the rates are already artifically low. when the next true recession hits, it's going to be interesting to see what they do.

    "The Federal Reserve" is political double-speak. It was only named that to give the average person the idea that it's a branch of the Federal government. It is NOT. It is a totally private organization owned and run by BANKS. NOT the government. Look it up.
