Jim Collins and his team expect the Fed will decide to bump up rates by 0.25% in its initial move. Even after the Fed raises rates, interest rates will remain near their lowest level in history. This means that interest rate policy is accommodative and will continue to allow the economy to expand at a rapid pace.
