Good, higher rates! I'm happy! I don't mind paying $4/gallon $92 dollars in my Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.

This woman really doesn't understand macroeconomics. Usually rising prices indicates spending increases (rising aggregate demand) and shortening supply (falling aggregate supply). Meaning that people are buying up goods and services and the economy is doing well. In theory that is. In reality....it's not that clear cut. But even so, rising prices alone doesn't mean the economy is necessarily in good or bad condition. What really shows that is when prices start to deflate noticeably, usually brought about due to people not spending money. Things that triggers that are stuff like unemployment rises, debt increases, bankruptcy increases, falling wages, business closures (which ties into employment decreases), retirement of production capital and so forth. When THAT happens, when real GDP starts to decrease quarter by quarter, consistently, then and only then can you safely assume the economy is in a downturn season.

She is saying that we have reached the peak of the short term cycle, saying it has been "8-10 years." When those things happen we're in a recessive economy, but not yet. She's saying it's close though, and the oil prices being the highest they've ever been along with interest rates, mortgages, etc. show we're definitely hitting the peak. That's why it's so important that she mentioned the mid term elections, as we could be in a falling economy at that point. Note the term losing steam, not failing, but running out of success now or soon. I'm shorting stocks now haha Also I think she has to understand macro econ to work CNN money... ;)
