The U.S. economy resembles a large straining pustule about to pop its bulbous pus all over the place.
“You ever get a pimple on the end of your nose? First it’s angry and red, painful to the touch, you nurture that thing with love and care, squeeze it once in awhile to test its contents. Once matured, it fills up nice and good, you can even see a little white head straining from the top. This time when you squeeze, you get payback as that balloon pops satisfyingly all over the mirror, well, that pimple is exactly like the economy, and when it bursts it will actually be a relief,” Fed Chairman, Janet Yellen told Congress on Tuesday.
