The Fed wasn’t immune from the political spectacle that was the Presidential debate on Monday. After that, Yellen had to answer even more criticisms from the nation’s financial regulation.
“The Fed is being more political than Secretary Clinton”— Trump
In Monday’s much-awaited presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, there were many contentious topics brought up to over 80 million viewers throughout the event. One topic, brought up by Mr. Trump, was the Federal Reserve, as well as Janet Yellen. As you might guess, he was not singing praises to the Fed Chair on the stage. Trump brought up that Yellen’s moves might be influenced by President Obama, and that the possibility of a stock market bubble was a near-certain disaster awaiting the economy.
