Elon Musk has warned that another rate hike by the US Federal Reserve could lead to deflation hitting the economy.

Last year, Musk predicted that the US would enter a recession.

On Friday, Governor of the Federal Reserve Christopher Waller warned that he expects a “significant” rate hike this month.

He mentioned that policymakers should stop guessing the future and instead go with what the data says.

Waller later added that he expects rate hikes to continue until at least “early next year” as the central bank works to bring inflation closer to its 2% target.

However, he said the Fed’s “policy course” would depend on upcoming economic data. He indicated that he would support the 0.75-point move rather than a half-point raise.

Last week, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Jerome Powell said Policymakers will “press hard” to push prices towards the 2% target “until the job is done”.

“The Fed appears to be responding to Covid-related supply shocks spanning 15 months in the same way as the former Fed Chair Paul Volcker fighting the inflation that has been brewing and building for 15 years,” tweeted Ark Investment Management’s CEO.
