2 Attachment(s) The different White House scandals will not stop the Federal Reserve from raising short-term interest rates next month, economists said Thursday.

Analysts said these were weren't swayed by the drop in Wall Street expectations for a rate hike on Wednesday.

“I don't believe they're focused on a basic dysfunction in Washington,” he stated.

The Fed believes the economy has created cumulative development toward total employment and 2% inflation and believes the level of interest rates as perhaps not being proper, Simons added.

“The [Fed] cavalry isn't coming” to rescue investors from a market sell off, stated Krishna Guha, vice-chairman of Evercore ISI.
