    Business Insider UK Wed 22 Jan 2020 13:04
    President Trump slammed the Fed for raising interest rates in 2017 and 2018. He accused the Fed of hindering the economy and stock market in a CNBC interview. The economy would be growing faster and the stock market could be more than a third higher if the central bank hadn't hiked rates, Trump said. "Had we not done the big raise on interest, I think we would have been close to 4%," Trump said. "I could see 5,000 to 10,000 points more on the Dow. It was just a big mistake."

    We've reached peak globalisation, says Capital Economics, and emerging economies like China will suffer. That means the widespread assumption that China will leapfrog the US for the title of the world's biggest economy is likely wrong.  "If we're right, then the world in 2050 will look very different to what the consensus expects," the economists said.

    Business Insider UK Wed 22 Jan 2020 11:04

    Ray Dalio proclaimed "cash is trash" and warned investors against ditching stocks for dollars in a CNBC interview on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday.

    The advice from the billionaire founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world's largest hedge fund, contrasts with the stance of Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate was sitting on $128 billion in cash at last count.

    Dalio warned the value of hard currency would be eroded by a weaker dollar and growing money supply. He recommended investors build a globally diversified portfolio that includes at least some gold.

  • New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has so far missed the mark in predicting Trump's election would devastate the global economy Link
    Business Insider UK Tue 21 Jan 2020 13:03
    President Trump blasted Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman on Sunday for predicting his election would devastate the global economy. "If you listened to the flawed advice of @paulkrugman at the @nytimes, a newspaper that was going broke until I came along, you would have entirely missed the RECORD BREAKING Stock Market (and other) numbers produced since Election Day, 2016," Trump tweeted. "We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight," Krugman wrote after the 2016 election. Krugman has repeatedly attacked Trump's economic record, but his doomsday predictions are yet to come true. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
