"The Fed understands that the economy has ‘headwinds’ – a euphemism for the large stocks of debt still present across all sectors of the US economy – that remain a major risk to growth in the event of interest rate shocks such as the one seen in 2013.” Finally, he added, the Fed will generally want to appear hawkish during periods of weaker data, because this means that it can be less hawkish during periods of stronger data. He concluded: “We note in passing that investors hungrily snapped up bonds when Greece successfully returned to the market for the first time since its dramatic default in 2011. The fact that appetite for Greece’s new bonds is so strong – despite the country’s 175% debt to GDP ratio – indicates that many investors still believe firmly in Oracles.” Comments (0)"
