The economy is growing but not strong enough to risk raising rates or tapering. The Great ATMs (Housing and Stocks) are up considerably from last year and that's inflationary. Oil is still over $100. Money is being thrown around the world like never before. Real rates are zero to negative. Sounds pretty good to me. If I just woke up from a 2 year coma and was told these facts, I would expect Gold and Silver to be at their highs. Bizarre thinking now a days.
In what way is the economy growing? You are seeing phony number which come about because they lie on the figures. There is no reason to have3 rate so low because no one is borrowing in the first place. All you are doing is funding scatter brain take overs which do nothing
