    The Fed is slowing raising interest rates in order to avoid inflation and overheating the economy. It kept interest rates artificially low for too long. While it may have helped some people, it greatly harmed people who actually save money.

    Also, the drop in the market was caused by increased interest for T-Bills - generally seen as one of the safest investments. So if you have T-Bills (I do not any longer; on edit I do I forgot about my TSP- I actually have a lot of them), things are going good for you. And the drop in the DOW so far this month is 4.4 percent. By comparison, the drop in the DOW on Black Friday (1987) was 22%.

    Obviously you wouldn't understand an explanation.

    In general, as interest rates are lowered, more people are able to borrow more money. The result is that consumers have more money to spend, causing the economy to grow and inflation to increase. The opposite holds true for rising interest rates. ... With less spending, the economy slows and inflation decreases.

    It is an inverse relationship.

    But a slowing economy is not good, is it?
    The best of times always have some inflation, and that gives sellers an opportunity to take more profits by raising prices. It raises Real Estate prices, eg.

    There is the danger of over-doing interest rates and "killing the economy" or stalling it out.
    Its easy to see why Trump is worried about it.
