Larry Summers Warns on Fed Rate Hikes

Fri, Jan 23, 2015 - 8:41am

In Davos, former Treasury Secretary and would-be Federal Reserve Chairman Larry Summers warns the U.S. central bank to put off any increases to short term interest rates, citing deflation and secular stagnation as the two major threats of the current era of central bank omnipotence (that, lately, is evolving into something of a currency war).

Summers also doesn’t think the European Central Bank’s money printing extravaganza, announced to much fanfare yesterday (and sharply higher stock prices around the world) is going to do the eurozone much good, that is, save for another round of asset inflation.
