  • There are some economists, like Martin Feldstein, who argue that the Fed should simply ignore this noise and keep on raising rates.
  • The thought is that rates should be considerably higher so the Fed can lower rates when the next recession arrives.
  • While we’re somewhat in the middle in this debate, there are more fundamental issues at stake – like what are the role and limits of the Fed?
