Last quote by Jacob A. Frenkel

Late normalization is costly, it creates distortions, it affects the financial markets, it gives superficial, artificial boosts to financial investments instead of real investments. After all, we want to see economic growth, we want to see job creation and this is only going to be done if there are investments in plants and equipment. Europe needs to have higher productivity, higher profitability and therefore a weaker euro is serving Europe. So it is in this case, the U.S. raising rates is helping Europe and it will end up in a virtuous cycle.feedback
