St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard said on Thursday that he expects to see an “investment boom” fueled by low yields and expectations the coronavirus pandemic is going to end, as reported by Reuters.

“Any further fiscal program should be disciplined to go to households that need it rather than piling on,” Bullard added and reiterated that negative rates are not a good option for the US.

“Single-party control of the White House and Congress is not a blank check, a split in the Senate will still make some measures difficult,” Bullard further argued.
