Fed Chair Jerome Powell Claims ‘Vaccine May Be Needed To Restore Economic Confidence’


Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has claimed a coronavirus vaccine will be necessary for full economic recovery. On Sunday, America’s top central banker stated the vaccine will have an important psychological effect on restoring investor and consumer confidence in the U.S. economy.

He also expressed people should not bet against America’s ability to recover from the pandemic. According to the latest polls, fearmongering in mainstream media has convinced 30 percent of Americans they cannot return to normal life without a vaccine.

Powell has suggested the U.S. economy could recover within the coming year.

“Assuming there’s no second wave of the coronavirus, I think you’ll see the economic recovery steadily through the second half of this year. For the economy to fully recover, people will have to be fully confident. That may have to await the arrival of a vaccine.” – Jerome Powell, Chairman of the Federal Reserve

He noted coronavirus fears continue to stir economic uncertainty, while policy response remains unclear, despite strong macro fundamentals.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s former economic adviser Gary Cohn has urged a rollback of economic stimulus policies. On Sunday, he stated the U.S. government must encourage people to go looking for a job as states lift virus-related restrictions.

He has argued jobless benefits may discourage people from returning into the workforce. The U.S. labor participation rate was just above 60 percent before the COVID crisis but is now expected to drop further due to relief payments.

Cohn also decried layoffs of nurses and doctors, as hospitals continue to reserve beds for COVID patients that never arrive.

“If we really want to get the people back to work that Chairman Powell was talking about, we need to reopen the economy. Those people earning less than $40,000 a year are very important, we rely on them. The health care system is 20 percent of our GDP. If we get it back up and running, a lot of people in the lower wage bracket end up working in the health care system. We need that to happen.”

– Gary Cohn, former White House economic adviser

Cohn added the U.S. has passed its peak unemployment and must return to robust job creation in the coming months.

The Blue Checkmark Brigade have come out in full force just like we knew that they would. After all, they can’t stand the idea of not having an iron grip on all your information. They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
