Bill Gross to Ritholtz: No Plans To Retire, Need To Prove To World My Track Record Was Not A Fluke

In an interview, airing Jan 17th at 10am ET on Bloomberg Radio, Janus Capital's Bill Gross said to Bloomberg's Barry Ritholtz:

  • Fed officials had to do something to free up frozen credit markets.
  • Disagrees with Fed's zero-interest rate policy, would have stopped cutting rates at 1-percent.
  • Congress should have put into effect a full stimulus plan after the 'Great Recession'
  • 10-year bond should be yielding closer to 3 percent, not under 2 percent looking like it wants to go lower; why interest rates should be gradually raised by the Fed over the next 2 to 3 years, a t least to 2 percent, possibly 3 percent.
  • U.S. should take advantage of low rates to repair America's crumbling infrastructure, create jobs and stimulate the economy.
  • He has no plans to retire, "this is what I do... I am very competitive and I want to show the world my track record was not a fluke."

Additionally, as reported yesterday by Bloomberg's Mary Childs [http://bloom.bg/1BUvo6k], Gross confirmed to Ritholtz that Pimco fired him after offer to scale back role, "For some reason still unbeknownst to me, they didn't think that was a good idea and they did fire me...In the last few weeks, it blindsided me; I had no idea that an executive committee could fire a founder and the titular leader of the company."
