Inflation is coming down, but Ted Oakley of Oxbow Advisors says it’ll be difficult to get inflation below 4% or 5%. Rates are putting stress on the economy. The M2 money supply contracted last year for the first time in decades. Real estate is taking a hit and the bear market in stocks will continue, he says. The U.S. is $31 trillion in debt, and if rates stay high long enough, the political side will start complaining. Whether the Fed can have the fortitude to keep rates high to quell inflation remains to be seen, he says.
