Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell recently argued that the central bank will be patient on cutting interest rates. Moody’s economist Mark Zandi argues that if interest rates are not cut soon, it could lead to more bank failures and a recession. 

“Those rates are corrosive on the economy. They wear the economy down, and at some point, something could break. The risk that they’re taking here is that they undermine the economy and recession occurs.”

—Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics
