  1. Highly-rated - last 48 hrs
    Federal Reserve announces biggest interest rate hike since 1994.
    The Guardian (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 85% • 3 min read

    Until this week the Fed had been expected to announce a smaller increase. The Fed chair, Jerome Powell, said the central bank decided that a larger hike was needed after recent economic news, including last week’s announcement that inflation had risen to a 40-year high.
    ...
    Powell acknowledged that the Fed’s attempt to cool spending is likely to lead to job losses. The Fed expects unemployment to rise to 4.1% from the current rate of 3.6% as it attempts to bring inflation back down to its target rate of 2%. “We never seek to put people out of work,” Powell said. But, he added: “You really cannot have the kind of labor market we want without price stability.”
    ...
    Nearly 70% of the academic economists now believe the US economy will tip into a recession next year. Many parts of the economy remain strong and the Fed is aiming for a “soft landing” – hoping it can tame inflation without sharply increasing unemployment – but some risks, including the war in Ukraine, are beyond the influence of the Fed.

Should the US do prisoner swaps to free Americans wrongfully detained abroad?

244 votes, 30 comments

Context: Pre-trial detention of WNBA star in Russia extended.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

Yes - There is no real point in trying to take an ethical high ground "we don't negotiate w/ ....." when dealing with these bad actors. The argument that it only encourages them to do more would be relevant if the country were just starting to be a bad actor, but with Russia and most of those places on the map in the story, they have a long history of bad acting. If we have prisoners that we can trade without doing us harm, then trade them.


No - What a dangerous proposition. Basically tell every sketchy country to find and detain a US citizen to get one of your citizens out of their country. Maybe we 1. S...



Maybe - While I agree that we should work for the return of "wrongly" imprisoned Americans, many "wrongly" imprisoned Americans have been detained because they violated a vali...
