The Fed is boosting Asset Prices
“What the Fed has done is to lift asset prices, and the cost of living. In the meantime, the cost of living increases are higher than the wage increases. The typical American household income is going down in real term,” averred Faber, who believes Fed policy has heightened income inequality, a topic that has dominated U.S. politics since the economic collapse.
“The Fed is boosting asset prices. It leads to less affordability, people can’t buy their homes anymore in the lower income group. The more they print, the more inequality there is, the weaker the economy will become.”
