Peter Boockvar: Recession Near As Fed Hikes Rates While Economy Slows

Wealthion, Released on 3/15/22

As the Russian invasion into Ukraine continues into its 3rd week, despite the world’s hopes for resolution uncertainty continues to grow. What will the geopolitical situation look like after a cease-fire is declared? IF one is declared. How badly will the trade disruptions with Russia worsen inflation, given Russia’s role as a top exporter for many key commodities? Are we weakening the US dollars’ role as the global reserve currency by giving other nations cause to accelerate their efforts to de-dollarize? The cost of capital is increasing as interest rates are on the rise — right as we anticipate the Federal Reserve to kick off a new era of Quantitative Tightening at its meeting this week. Are a further correction in the markets and possibly a recession now more likely as a result? To help us understand what is likely to emerge from all this swirling uncertainty, we welcome Peter Boockvar, Chief Investment Officer at Bleakley Advisory Group and Editor of The Boock Report.
