Former BlackRock portfolio manager Edward Dowd is predicting more bank failures ahead. Of the WSJ’s reporting that 186 U.S. banks “may have risks similar to Silicon Valley Bank,” Dowd predicts that only six major banks will be left standing, paving the way for CBDCs. “If you wanted to introduce central bank digital currency, wouldn’t it be better to have only six banks in the U.S., all systemically important, basically run by the government?” At the same time, Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel warns that there’s no way the Fed can lower inflation while also trying to stabilize the banking system. It’s a sentiment billionaire “Bong King” Jeffrey Gundlach agrees with, warning that he thinks we’re only months away from a recession.

“Let me tell you … how absurd the Fed’s conference and projections are absurd,” the top economist said in an interview with CNBC on Friday, referring to the Fed’s economic forecasts released at the last Federal Open Markets Committee meeting.

Gundlach Predicts a US Recession Will Start in a Few Months

Doubleline Capital’s Jeffrey Gundlach said on CNBC that he expects a US recession will start in a few months, and that the Federal Reserve will need to respond “very dramatically.”

“The economic headwinds are building, we’ve been talking about this for a while, and I think the recession is here in a few months,” Gundlach said Monday. “All we really need is the unemployment rate to go higher.”

The Doubleline Capital founder also said he anticipates the Fed will cut interest rates “a couple of times” this year. The overall state of the economy is “clearly weak,” he said.
