Because there isn't enough disinformation or lies the fark admin decides to join the Fox News school of characterizing stuff.

So big businesses had a plan to profit from inflation, as long as rates stayed low?

Big businesses are pissed they may need to invest in their own prognostication?

Big investors are having a tantrum that the cheap money spigot has been shut off? That all the real estate they bought at the top of the market might lose value?

Central banks have limited tools to combat inflation, they use them, and the people causing the inflation get mad? Well, they can kindly fark off with that crap.

I can't point to the time when we became a Corptocracy, but I feel like we've been there my entire life.

Have they tried cutting back on that expensive cell phone and looking for a real job? I've heard that's popular when unemployment is 8-10%, it should be just as good when Treasury Bonds hit that number.

The fed is trying to stem demand and therefore prices by driving unemployment up. High interest rates are suppose to make investment harder forcing layoffs which cause people to not spend. Labor market is still super strong though despite the fed's rate hikes. I think the fed may be running out of ammo

"The recent decline in layoffs flies in the face of the Fed's efforts to soften up labor market conditions and knock inflation back down toward its 2% target," said Jim Baird, chief investment officer at Plante Moran Financial Advisors. "The capital markets have heard the Fed, and investors are feeling the pain. But the jobs market? For now at least, it's not listening."

Fed makes rates high:

1.  They're just trying to make it easy for their rich corporate buddies to fire the working man.
2.  They're trying to make mortgage payments high so that homes are unaffordable for the workingman so their rich corporate buddies can have them.
3.  They're making it so the stocks go down so their rich corporate buddies can get a great deal on stocks.

Fed makes rates low:
1.  They're just trying to make it easy for their rich corporate buddies to raise the prices of the things they sell because the payments of the working man are so low.
2.  They're just trying to raise the prices of homes so that they are unaffordable to the working man so their rich corporate buddies can have them.
3.  They're making it so the stocks go up so their rich corporate buddies can get more rich.

The important takeaway is that you're always screwed by the Fed's rich corporate buddies, pal.
