Interest Rate Hike is Probably 6 or 8 Months Too Late

Sam Zell, chairman at Equity Group Investments, spoke with Stephanie Ruhle and David Westin on Bloomberg TV's "Bloomberg <GO>." He discussed the expected Federal Reserve rate hike, the risk of a near-term recession, and investor flexibility provided by low-interest.

Zell said: "I think that this interest rate hike is probably 6 or 8 months too late. I think that the economy is closer to falling over than it is to going up."

He added: "I think that there's a high probability that we're looking at a recession in the next 12 months."

Zell confirmed Airbnb approached Equity Residential about using their apartments: "[Airbnb] for sure has approached EQR and they've had some conversations. I don't think that the overall scale of Airbnb is going to change the multifamily business. It might create, particularly in certain situations, scenarios where maybe a rental project is much better suited to be used as a semi-hotel in an Airbnb situation."
