More Insanity
August 25 (King World News) – Holger Zschaepitz:
  Just to put things into perspective: The average US worker must now work 128 hours to buy 1 share of S&P 500. That’s almost a record. In the 1980s, it took less than 20 hours. (See below).

It’s The Exact Opposite
Peter Boockvar:
  Ahead of Jay Powell’s speech on Thursday, there is chatter that he will talk about a new inflation regime they are shooting for but I need to remind everyone that ‘symmetry’ in their inflation goals has been a part of every single FOMC statement this year. So, wanting to overshoot after a period of undershoot is current policy. I’m guessing the Fed’s goal if he talks about it again is their way of telling the markets again that they won’t raise rates off zero unless there is sustained inflation above 2%. The average consumer won’t be happy though and all this is crackpot economics anyway because there is nothing in economic history that says low inflation hinders growth and higher inflation enhances it. In fact, it’s the exact opposite.

This has been the wording they’ve used this year: “In determining the timing and size of future adjustments to the stance of monetary policy, the Committee will assess realized and expected economic conditions relative to its maximum employment objective and its symmetric 2 percent inflation objective.” The underline is mine.

Instead, with seemingly great progress on effective therapeutics and a vaccine, Powell should be thinking about thinking about beginning the removal of all the excessive easing he’s had in place. Especially their purchases of corporate bonds like Apple.
