Trump: "Let’s be honest, I’m a low-interest-rate person" (but he'll turf Yellen out)

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

With Trump the front (and only at this stage)-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, some of his thoughts on policy

(Oh, and I, for one, welcome our new Trump overlord)

  • He wants low interest rates
  • He wants a weaker USD
  • He wants to refinance debt and spend the money on infrastructure
  • "I love the concept of a strong dollar, but when you look at the havoc that a strong dollar causes ... it sounds better to have a strong dollar than it actually is."

Oh, and for Janet Yellen, when her time is up, its up:
  • "I have nothing against Janet Yellen whatsoever, she's very capable person. But she's not a Republican," Trump said. "When her time is up I would most likely replace because of the fact it would be appropriate."

Hands off our Janet!
