Guest, Danielle DiMartino Booth and Andrew discuss some of the inside scoop on the Fed’s decision making process. Trial balloons and throwing spaghetti appear to be some of the core disciplined that are used. Of course that is not what they would like us to believe, but Danielle exposes the Fed and how they come to their decisions.
Danielle’s recent article – Beer Goggle Markets is explored to better understand her take on investor sentiment.
We also spend some time on the potential changes that are taking place in the markets with a win by Trump. Amazing how most of the talking heads got this one wrong – from the winner to the market’s reaction.
Danielle DiMartino Booth makes bold predictions based on meticulous research and her years of experience in central banking and on Wall Street. Known for sounding an early warning about the housing bubble in the 2000s, Danielle offers a unique perspective to audiences seeking expertise in the financial markets, the economy, and the intersection of central banking and politics.
Called “The Dallas Fed‘s Resident Soothsayer” by D Magazine, Danielle is a well-known speaker who can tailor her message to a myriad of audiences, once spending a week crossing the ocean to present to groups as diverse as the Portfolio Management Institute in Newport Beach, the Global Interdependence Center in London and the Four States Forestry Association in Texarkana. Her success is based on her ability to translate the arcane language of Wall Street thinkers and Fed insiders to the man on the street. Danielle is regularly featured on CNBC and Bloomberg.
