Summary

The Fed looks poised to raise rates tomorrow and at least 2 other times this year.

Raising rates by the book causes puts pressure on inflation and the stock market.

Does the Fed's rate plan reflect a pro business outlook invited by the Trump Administration.

This week on the Estimize Roundtable, Estimize's CEO, Leigh Drogen, and SVP of Media, Christine Short, are joined by Nick Colas, Chief Market Strategist at Convergex. With the markets (and Estimize community) anticipating that the FOMC will raise rates at Wednesday's meeting, the roundtable explores all things Federal Reserve. Topics include a discussion around the probability of 3 hikes this year as the Fed suggested, whether the US economy can handle resulting inflation (or if raising rates truly does spur inflation), and the impact that may be seen on markets, commodities and the consumer.
