  1. Charles Ponzi

    Prognosticating about the impact of a 150 point flash rate increase by the afed is on a par with the DOD developing a war plan to combat a zombie apocalypse. Junior analysts and junior officers from third rate schools cutting and pasting slide decks to address scenarios best suited for video games.

  2. I have to agree with Mr. Ponzi. Extremely unlikely that the FED would even contemplate a 150 bp “shock”. Zombi Apocalypse seems more likely. There are analysts out there who seem to get orgasmic gratification by imagining and writing about highly improbable very worse case scenarios. So be it.

  3. Here’s a thought: What if a 150bp increase — or a 150bp x3 — helped to “kill” the Vampire Squid and, more generally, financialization of the U.S. economy, forcing those with money to lend to led it to activities that are actually productive in terms of growing an economy?
