thanks for watching it's a modest cut interest rates that has some scratching their heads the u.s. federal reserve has lowered rates by a quarter percent despite strong economic indicators in the country officials pointed to softening business investment and muted inflation it's been a long time since the last rate cut almost 11 years in fact that was december 2008 on the tail end of federal reserve efforts to prime financial markets during the recession it's only gone up since then in line with the recovering and eventually booming american economy now compare that to the european central bank where the deposit rate has long been below 0 and where policymakers are still cutting and that's putting even more pressure on the fed as rate cuts devalue the euro against the dollar affecting trade balances and then there's the pressure from u.s. president donald trump he's repeatedly pushed for a larger interest rate cut in fact saying today that fed chairman jerome powell had

let him down. jerome paul's delivery was in line with the dry and factual tone fed chairman have always displayed yet there was a hint of caution as he explained the committee's decision to cut the benchmark rate for the 1st time in over a decade for the federal funds it is intended to insure against downside risks from weak global growth and trade policy uncertainty to help offset the effects these factors are currently having on the economy and to promote a faster return of inflation to our symmetric 2 percent objective that trade policy uncertainty would be the result of u.s. president trumps ongoing fights with china the e.u. and even his north american neighbors any criticism of trump's policies might have been inappropriate for a fed chairman but trump himself had on relentlessly attacked the fed's policies demanding larger rate cuts to support pledging to act as appropriate to sustain the expansion of the fed signaled possible future rate cuts for the benefit wall street

conference lay out a strong enough argument for why. why he's cutting rates despite the strong economic data frankly in the us. stephen he was a pretty big reguard so was the. statement in bold the case is the outlook for the u.s. economy remain favorable while the current expansion was to find some staying power will mention that we should expect the job growth to be slower down last year but defended still sees the us a growing 2 point one percent in $21000.00 on employment and near record lows that this year also inflation should catch up with just below did 2 percent goal a situation which makes it harder for some to justify easing monetary conditions actually today's decision was not unanimous sense as kansas city fed president and every grossman when they had all boston spent can see to the need to wait and see

and beijing wasted no time in responding and what our new t.v. show will mean i think it's meaningless for the u.s. to pursue these maximum pressure tactics when someone is ill it's useless to ask someone else to take the medicine really the u.s. should show more sincerity in good faith when it comes to trade negotiations. the 2 sides positions appear to be hardening the white house is already imposed tariffs on half of chinese imports and has threatened to go further china has hit back with its own tariffs the result levies on 300 $60000000000.00 into a trade hitting the economies of both parties anyone who had hoped that the 2 sides who come together on wednesday was left disappointed when the doors reopened at a 4 hour is a quick photo opportunity was all that was left to do the american delegation
