    I'm pretty sure when it comes to how average families manage their financial affairs you're playing on a different field to most of us.

    Let's not forget it's not the fault of consumers that this financial mess has erupted. Yes we all have a lot to learn as far as how the economy is run and how to best grow wealth and we all squander our $$ at times and sure ignorance of how the modern monetary system and responsible budgeting is largely to blame, but we can only play the ball that has been bowled and successive governments are only intent upon playing to the electorate's weaknesses in order to retain power.

    The government and its monetary arm don't need to rise rates, all they need to do is spend, everything else is just noise at the periphery.

    How about rentals? What's the net yield for rental properties? If the yield is low, like over here, a million $ apartment only gets $2k gross rent, even a 1% rise will make the investment untenable.

    Thinking aloud. ;):eek:
    The constant talk of rate hikes has been done over and over again; some say this time is different and the Federal Reserve will increase rates and taper.
    Of course, everyone knows the Fed has a trading desk and a big printing press; most folk agree the stock-market has been artificially bolstered so that it goes from strength to strength.
    Plenty of folk have borrowed money to buy stocks and Bitcoin or other popular cryptos.

    Food for thought.
    It's been said, if the Fed hikes interest rates, the stock-market will crash as will bitcoin. (Bitcoin has dropped from Black Monday 20 October 2021 to it's current level, nearly 25000USD drop).

    The Fed will never let block chain take control unless they own it; they have the printing press and trading desk to not only control Bitcoin prices, they have the capacity to own a good majority.
    Just 21 million coins available, of which, a percentage (whatever that would need to be) could be owned by the Fed to take total control, just as they do with the stock-market.

    "If" the Fed has a plan to crash the market, I'm wondering if they are thinking about taking control of Bitcoin and in-doing so, scare the hell out of other folk holding popular cryptos.

    Once the Fed has control of Bitcoin, they are in the driving seat again.

    So, just thoughts guys, don't go smashing me please.;):eek::D

    Wouldn't the market just fork and/or change the protocol any time the fed tried to do something dodgy? They'd get smoked.
    Also, each bitcoin is divisible by one-hundred-million. You could almost say for academic purposes that there are 21 million times 100 million 'units' (classically nominated as 'Satoshi's/'Sats' etc). At this point the fed could buy every single remaining coin and it would do jack-shit to its functionality at whatever price it gets to.

    What am I missing?

    @Pirocco mentioned that central banks will need to destroy 'savings' in order to print more money, which makes sense. Going by this logic, it's possible that they are also targeting cryptos. But I doubt they are just targeting crypto per se.
