The Fed has to ramp up QT or stop pretending that it is tightening in a meaningful way. The Fed added $4.8 Trillion to its balance sheet over a two year period and the 7% reduction that has occurred over the past 15-16 months is a drop in the QT bucket. There remains far too much excess in the system. Look no further than the AI bubble. When investors readily accept 20-30x Revenue multiples, nevermind EBITDA multiples, it is a sign that too much slack exists in the system. This Fed has failed.
