Hey Maria! Thank you for reaching out to us. For a tight money market to turn into an easy money market, a recession is required. An easy money market is designed to increase the money supply, grow the collective demand, and create new jobs. By doing this, interest rates will drop, business activities will accelerate, and the unemployment rates will drop.
