    All The Fed commentary to date has suggested they will proceed very patiently and very gradually in normalizing policy. Our sense is the Fed might be extra cautious moving on rates close to the election since they'll have to be seen as politically neutral, based on our view of how the economy will perform over the next six months and( considering) the U.S. is pretty close to full employment now... December is probably as good a time as any to move next.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Whenever an injustice is done, any non-action and neutrality is not appropriate - it's an indirect bullying, I.e. joining the hands of your aggressors, and being an accomplice. Such passive bullies are far worst than those active ones who take an enjoyment in kicking you when you're down. Whether neutral or active, bullies are mean deceitful heartless cowards, who always work in groups to pick on nice and innocent people like you. If you confront these bullies individually, they will shiver and shrink. Be brave, and don't ever give in to bullying.
