Every day I read the world and U.S. news, as well as the financial news, and am becoming increasingly frustrated with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and his sidekick, former Secretary of the Treasury Larry Summers. Powell and Summers appear to believe that increasing the unemployment rate, essentially putting some folks out of work and supporting stagnant, or even decreasing, pay rates, is best for our economy. It is very disturbing that hurting people is not only an acceptable but also a positive way for Powell and Summers to treat workers in this country.
