The stock market drop isn't going to stop the Federal Reserve from normalizing interest rates, noted economist Mohamed El-Erian told CNBC on Wednesday.
And that's a good thing, he said.
"I don't think this derails the Fed in any way and I think we just have to get used to the fact that we have to stand on the basis of fundamentals and not on the basis of central banks," the chief economic advisor for Allianz said on "Closing Bell."
"It's not an easy transition. It's going to be volatile but over the long term it's better for the health and robustness of markets."
The Fed has raised its benchmark rate three times already this year, most recently at the end of September, a move which has helped send Treasury yields to multiyear highs in October. The central bank meets two more times this year and is expected to hike rates one more time.
Concerns about rapidly rising interest rates have led to a selloff in the stock market.
On Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down more than 800 points — its worst drop since February. The dropped 3.3 percent and fell below its 50-day and 100-day moving averages, widely followed technical levels. The Nasdaq Composite plummeted 4 percent.
El-Erian likened the change from a liquidity-driven market to a fundamentally-driven market to an airplane "changing engines while flying at a high altitude."
"It's not surprising to me that we're seeing this," he said. "The only question is why it took so long."
However, El-Erian expects the pullback to be temporary because of strong U.S. economic growth.
"You've got three domestic engines revving up at the same time," he said, pointing to fiscal spending, household income and business investment.
"For the next two years growth prospects are good for the U.S."
"That speaks to the key issue of divergence. When you get such divergent growth rates and policies, you start stretching markets," he said, pointing to the "enormous" difference between the 10-year US Treasury and the 10-year German bund.
"A lot of stress is going on in the context of the U.S. picking up momentum and the rest of the world decelerating."
