  10. But he got inflation tamed, and has been tamed since. He probably looked at as a necessary evil to defeat inflation.
  11. Completely walled off? No. But at least mostly independent? Yes. It is why fed terms cross over administrations, past presidents took the best available people, and not syncopaths which is what Trump is trying to do. All presidents try to a degree to get the fed to do what they want, but it acts fairly independently. Neither Carter or Reagan wanted insanely high interest rates, but Volcker put them into place and kept them there until inflation was under control. There is a reason Greenspan was in place as chair for 4 different presidents, of two different parties. They (and I) did not always agree with what he was doing, but they knew he was a steady and independent hand at the helm of the fed. Bernake and Yellen were very similar. Trump wants yes men/women. He thought Powell would be that person at the Fed. that is why Trump has threatened to fire Powell for not doing what he wants. (trump probably cannot fire Powell)
  12. GS down 5.75 due to a less than stellar financial report. Boeing down 4.25 because, well Boeing https://www.marketwatch.com/story/stock-futures-steady-as-investors-await-goldman-citi-results-2019-04-15?mod=mw_quote_news
  13. Trump needs to stop interfering so heavily with Fed policy. Its strength is its independence. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/donald-trump-the-stock-market-should-be-as-much-as-10000-points-higher-2019-04-14?mod=mw_theo_homepage
