Well there's more news coming out of Washington the Federal Reserve is gonna announce tomorrow what moves if any it's gonna take.
When the -- -- FOMC.
Meeting -- our next guest is on the Fed's open and his stimulus.
Quantitative easing program -- me turn -- T.
But -- is a former yeah.
The sample was -- is now with Russell investments.
Out of Seattle.
A Q eternity you think that's his name believe that the Fed shouldn't do any thing in the -- the fiscal -- talks right now they believe that they should stay pat not physically -- -- in the statement tomorrow still at this after the persevere using QE eternity is the better way to go -- That's right I think then the Fed needs to.
Probably do something to replace the Operation Twist is expiring to add to the quantitative easing -- -- they have in terms of buying mortgage backed securities.
-- this mean I think it's likely the federal announced that they'll continue to asset purchase side of Operation Twist but just cancel the asset sales side.
-- increase the amount of operation the not a prime cities in per month.
By -- somewhere on the order of forty billion dollars.
And that I think that's good because they'll try to move the nominal GDP growth rate up.
Two words censored in at least one half percent maybe closer to 5% I think that's -- the economy needs because right now it.
But -- -- -- what I think you're saying had a Q eternity is I want to declare for our viewers you're -- they're gonna continue to buy mortgage backed securities.
Forty million a month we know -- we have been in place but this extension Operation Twist would be basically them by long term.
Treasuries that -- continue to buy treasuries but long term we -- -- -- of the short term market is that what you're saying.
Well Operation Twist that was in place before the Clinton he's in started in September.
With a program where they led by long term treasury bonds and sell an equal amount of short term treasury bills and notes.
What I expect them to do this thing would be to continue to buy the long term treasury bonds but canceled -- the sales side of the equation.
Cancel the sales of short term treasury bills and notes.
-- and add more -- -- the -- ABC program and help get nominal GDP growth.
But -- that about four and a half percent.
Right now if you if you think about firms make -- revenue forecast firms will make higher revenue forecast of the new nominal GDP growth would be up.
In the 45% range.
That would increase the number of events -- projects that makes sense on the part of firms that they had confidence -- That sounds great it does but what kind of timeframe are we talking about right now -- a half percent nominal GDP -- I think we're sitting at 2% right now barely above 2%.
And every talking second -- a 2013.
Do you think 2014.
For that type of growth to be seen.
Well the 2% number is for real GDP growth in nominal GDP growth is -- some of the inflation plus the real GDP growth so.
Our projection and of this is also a consensus forecast from -- have a consensus forecast is that.
Nominal GDP growth is expected write about four point 2%.
That's a little short of the target level but the Fed needs to designed to boost that up -- -- -- up to the -- to have to 5% range from projected four point 2% now.
Got you okay Atlanta to -- your projections they kind of get the timeframe and then the other issue I think we're gonna hear tomorrow about 2015 -- they gonna keep that target dating place there.
Way to get -- -- they might change their minds -- and it comes to inflation.
Mike Dicker thank you very much for giving us your sense -- -- -- but that's us tomorrow.
