Jeffrey Gundlach, the money manager who predicted the presidential election of Donald Trump when few saw it coming, has a new surprise call: Neel Kashkari will be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve.
wrote in an essay Monday
(“My Take on Inflation”) that the Fed shouldn’t raise interest rates again until inflation hits 2 percent or there’s a large drop in unemployment.
Kashkari hasn’t been floated as a potential candidate for the job.
“There’s no chance the president wants” Janet Yellen to continue as Fed chair, Gundlach said.
Nor will Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, get the nod, according to the fund manager.
