Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



The idea that deficits don’t matter for countries that can borrow in their own currency I think is just wrong,” said Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell during testimony in the Senate.

Powell took on an increasingly popular theory pushed by progressives that the government can continue to borrow to fund social programs such as Medicare for all, free college tuition, and a conversion to renewable energy in the next decade – and it is unworkable, Powell said Tuesday.


See the Related Reports, below for both increasingly heated debate over policies being pushed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC, NY-D), Senators Bernie Sanders (VT-I, but who causes with Democrats and is running for the Democratic nomination for president), among others.
