The more financial markets rally on the hope that the Fed is done

The more markets will be undermining the Fed’s efforts to slow the economy and get inflation down.

The world economy has been kept afloat for a quarter century by serial bubbles. 

Each has masked the weakness of underlying growth.

Today we are in the final phase of the great fiscal boom. Budget deficits ballooned to wartime levels on both sides of the Atlantic during Covid. These have yet to come down to tenable levels.

The consensus view at the US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank and the Bank of England is that the Wicksellian “natural” rate of interest – known as R* – has jumped to a permanently higher level.

Philip Turner warn that central banks are being misled by false assumptions about R* into dangerous overtightening, risking a global credit crunch and an asset crash.

Mr Cameron one of the worst.

Mr Cameron had the attributes to be an excellent prime minister: intelligence, diligence, a quick wit and a smooth manner. Instead, he managed to be one of the worst.

A man who bungled British foreign policy will now help shape it once more. A government struggling to figure out how to repair public services has appointed the man who, more than any other, caused their current difficulties. 

A man who deserted his office is now painted as an example of duty. In British politics, the appearance of competence is more important than the evidence of it.
