Fitzpatrick on the U.S. Economy and Recession
The Soros Fund Management chief shared her ideas on reports that the U.S. economy diminished in the very first quarter of this year. “When you look at that GDP number, I think the really important point is the reason it shrank is because of net imports, which were negative, which means we are importing a lot of goods from abroad. And that’s because consumer and corporate demand is robust. So I think there’s a silver lining in the reading of that GDP number,” she discussed.
Replying to a concern about whether she believes a recession is coming, Fitzpatrick stated:
There’s a great deal of conversation about a looming recession and the bottom line is a recession is inevitable. It’s a matter of when.
Regarding high inflation and the Federal Reserve raising rates of interest, the Soros Fund’s executive stated: “There is no doubt interest rates are going to go higher and the Fed is going to move very very quickly. That said, interest rates net of inflation are still negative, so monetary policy is still really easy.”
She concluded:“I don’t think we’ll avoid a recession. I just think it will be further out than people expect.”
