On Wednesday, the Senate Banking Committee held a hearing on the financial system, the economy and financial institutions.
While there were no major new developments from the hearing, the committee did discuss the potential for a tech market crash, and some of the concerns that have been raised.
While there is no evidence of a tech crash, the question remains as to how big a risk it is for tech stocks to be losing money, and if a crash would be likely.
In particular, there is concern that a tech slowdown could cause financial institutions to have to hike rates.
Currently, rates on banks and securities firms are generally very low.
The Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee currently has the ability to raise rates if it sees an economic or financial crisis.
As the Fed has stated that the Fed may consider raising rates at some point, there are still many questions about how much and when the rate hike will occur.
For example, the Fed could be considering a rate increase as soon as December, but how soon would that happen?
The committee also heard about the risk that the Internet could be disrupted in the event of a financial crisis, and that would make it more difficult for financial institutions and other companies to offer credit cards or other services.
Also, while the hearing was focused on the risk of a technology bubble, some of those concerns were raised about some of other tech companies.
First, Amazon and Microsoft were cited as being very concerned about a bubble that could burst.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is a former Republican presidential candidate, and is a strong supporter of Donald Trump.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Bezos said he thinks a tech-driven economic bubble could burst in the next five years, and he thinks that if it did, the damage would be worse than if the bubble burst in a recession.
“I think we’re going to be in a very different position,” Bezos told the Journal.
“I think this will be a longer period of time than we’ve seen.”
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates also warned that a bubble could emerge, but said he wasn’t expecting it to be as big as he predicted.
“I don’t think it’s going to come down to a big crash, I think it’ll come down much more to a lot of bad decisions, which is not a good thing,” Gates told CNBC.
“It’s not good for investors and it’s not great for business.
It’s not going to help the economy.”
A bubble could also have serious implications for other industries, such as finance.
In fact, the tech bubble could lead to more financial instability, according to the International Monetary Fund.
“The risk of an overheated bubble, which could result in a sharp downturn, would be much more pronounced in a crisis in the financial sector than in the rest of the economy,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde wrote in a research note published in January.
“This could be especially problematic in sectors where risk is low.”
Lagarde added that the tech industry could also suffer from the increased regulation that comes with a financial market bubble, such the impact of regulation on credit and interest rates.
