Should Bernanke Park the Helicopter? / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Frank_Shostak

According to Ben Bernanke, pulling back on aggressive policy measures too soon would pose a real risk of damaging a still-fragile recovery.

The Fed chief is of the view that, for the purposes of financial stability, a continuation of the central bank’s aggressive stimulus, conducted through purchases of Treasury and mortgage securities, remains the optimal approach.

The True Cost of the Current U.S. Federal Reserve Easy Money Stance / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified in front of Congress and faced a barrage of questions and criticisms regarding the central bank’s monetary policy initiative.

There are a growing number of critics voicing their concerns over the current monetary policy path set forth by the Federal Reserve. These critics aren’t only independent analysts such as myself, (I have been writing articles on the topic for some time now, including the article “Current Monetary Policy Unsustainable”), but economists who have worked closely with the Federal Reserve in the past.

What the Bank of Japan, China’s Government and the Fed Have in Common / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

As we’ve noted in recent articles, the US Federal Reserve has blown another bubble in stocks and facilitating the exact same risk-taking behavior that brought about the 2008.

The Fed realizing that it’s done this, which is why it’s now trying to manage down expectations of future stimulus (see the multiple suggestions from Fed officials that the Fed might reduce QE before hitting its unemployment target).

A Close Encounter With Zombiedom / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Bill_Bonner

Ben Bernanke spoke out on Tuesday, leaving no doubt where he stands on the QE issue. To print or not to print? He hardly seemed to think about it. Instead, he announced himself four-square in favor. If there is to be any prudence or propriety at America's central bank, it won't be on his watch!

This seemed to put some starch into investors' nerves. After a big sell-off on Monday... and a bounce on Tuesday... they went back into the markets yesterday with a single-minded command: "Buy!"

The ‘End’ of QE – Hype or Tripe? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Andy_Sutton

I am going to say right up front that there is going to be quite a bit of sarcasm in this essay. I say this simply because of the ludicrous nature of our marionette-esque talking heads in the mainstream financial press in this country. They are truly amazing, taking molehills and making mountains out of them and vice versa. In one segment telling us that there in fact will be no criminal charges against anyone involved in the HSBC drug/terrorism money laundering scandal – if they talk about it a all – while in the next advocating holding the next ten generations hostage by supporting the continued subsidy of said corrupt organization et al with fiat money printed from nothing with the debt placed on the taxpayer’s tab.

PIMCO's Bill Gross Expect QE To Continue To At Least End Of 2013 / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

PIMCO's Bill Gross told Bloomberg Television's Trish Regan and Adam Johnson on "Street Smart" yesterday that quantitative easing will continue to "at least the end of the year."

Gross said that the Federal Reserve knows that its policy has negatives: "There are ultimately and presently negatives to these policies. The chairman recognizes that." He also spoke about returning to the gold standard, which would be "very difficult."

QE for Dummies, Understanding the Most Outlandish Monetary Experiment Ever Conducted - Part1 / InvestorEducation / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Martenson

A reader recently lamented:

I have been trying to get my head around the mechanism of QE. Not being an economist or experienced investor I don't really understand a lot of the jargon. The usual simple definition of QE as "thin air money printing" does not satisfy my need for understanding either. Have hunted for a description of QE for dummies that leaves me feeling like I get it, but with no luck. My difficulty is in understanding how thin air money gets into circulation.

Will the Fed End QE Summer 2013? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Jeff Uscher writes: Amid all of the hoopla over the Standard & Poor's 500 Index touching 1,500 on Friday, it seems few people noticed that the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds has risen to within a couple of basis points of 2%. That is nearly 30 basis points higher than it was one month ago and 10 basis points higher than one year ago.

It seems as if the bond market is beginning to price in higher inflation at the long end of the yield curve, and that is something that has got to be worrying the Fed.

How To Spot A Zombie / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

That thing in Davos is on again, the World Economic Forum, sort of like the Academy Awards without awards but with the same peacock factor. And snow. Full of business leaders and government leaders and media leaders, the vast majority of whom are the same folks who attended before this crisis broke you but not them into pieces, and easily enough to make you realize with a shudder what an unmitigated disaster it is that these are the people who are supposed to take the world back to financial health. Simply because they are the people who profit most from the state of the world as it is, or they wouldn't be there. And they are the chosen ones destined to save you? They are only out to save themselves.

Federal Reserve May Pause Quantitative Easing / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing


An obscure report that the Federal Reserve may suspend the monetization of purchasing Treasury Bonds has the smell of disinformation. The perennial efforts to lift economic spirits with the beginning of a New Year often are packed with wishful thinking. Quantitative Easing is being treated as a useful tool for turning on and off the spigot of liquidity infusion. In reality, the results of the massive origination of debt created monies fundamental purpose is to save the commercial banks from insolvency.

Did the Fed Lie About QE 3 and 4? / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

It’s common belief that Bernanke and the Fed are printing $85 billion per month ($40 billion to buy Mortgage Backed Securities and $45 billion to buy Treasuries). After all, these are the policies that the Fed announced in September and December 2012, respectively.

The only issue with this is that the Fed lied.

Federal Reserve Members Question QE Beyond 2013 / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Eric_McWhinnie

The Federal Reserve launched its highly anticipated fourth round of quantitative easing in December. The latest money-printing program came only three months after the central bank’s unlimited QE3 was announced. Now, recent Federal Open Market Committee minutes show that policymakers are dividend about expanding the Fed’s balance sheet to unprecedented levels.

According to the just released FOMC minutes, several members want to ease off the monetary easing gas pedal by the end of this year, sooner than expected.

Ben Bernanke's Ghost of QE Past, Present, and Future / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: DeviantInvestor

It was the best of times; it might be the worst of times.

Dollar bills glide effortlessly to the ground, dropped from the giant QE machine in the sky. All is quiet, all is calm. There is peace on earth, well, at least in Washington D.C. and on Wall Street. And then with a horrible crash, another Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) explodes and collateral damage spreads far and wide.

Global Economy Drowning in Printed Money / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Erroneously believing themselves the cause of their good fortune, Americans continue to deny a changing world

In 2006, when I began writing my book on the coming economic collapse, I didn’t know what the Fed would do regarding liquidity. At the time, whether the Fed would raise or lower interest rates was a soon-to-be multi-trillion dollar question.
