Regardless of the Fed's rate decision in September, there'll be enormous pressure for them to ease when the global economy enters full-blown liquidation in 2017. The majority, whom thinks the Fed can 'fix' anything, does not care about the business cycle; business cycles do not exits because the economy can be easily controlled by central planning. The fact that history's panics and crisis from the failure of central planning does not influence their strong beliefs. This is why the majority becomes the bagholders of trend transitions common to panics and crises.
Headline: Fed will hike rates at ‘Goldilocks moment’ in September, Barclays economist says
