Why The End of QE May Be Imminent? / Politics / Quantitative Easing

Massive QE: Economic Death by Insulin Overdose? / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: DK_Matai

When one observes the present market volatility one is minded to think of insulin as a metaphor for QE. Insulin, like Quantitative Easing (QE), in large quantities is a killer. Insulin is much more subtle and effective than arsenic or any other fatal poison. When the victim dies because of a deliberate insulin overdose it is difficult to diagnose the cause of their death in a post-mortem. With arsenic or any other fatal poison it is easy because it leaves traces.

How the Fed Has the U.S. Economy Hooked on Monetary Cocaine” / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: The debates continue on whether the Federal Reserve should or should not begin to take its foot off the money-printing pedal. We will likely find out on June 14, which is when the Fed meets.

I know those seeking income from bonds want higher yields because it’s hard to survive when you are making only about one percent from a five-year U.S. government bond.

Reckless Expansion of Money Supply Results in Monstrous, Malignant, Moribund Economy / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Daughty

It was at breakfast that I was explaining my new theory. It goes like this: Since behavior has now been shown to be a function of genetics, and therefore subject to evolutionary pressures, that explains how, when women get to be menopausal, women’s genes notice that it’s now obvious that their deadbeat husbands are not going to impregnate them anymore, and therefore wives ought to get rid of these losers and try, try again with some other guys to test her fertility.

Japan’s Easy Money Tsunami / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: David_Howden

The Bank of Japan has embarked on one of the most inflationary policies ever undertaken. Pledging to inject $1.4 trillion dollars into the economy over the next two years, the policy is aimed at generating price inflation of 2% and further depreciating the Yen. The idea is to fight “deflation” and increase exports.

Fed Gearing Up to Scale Back on QE / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank president Dennis Lockhart told Bloomberg TV's Michael McKee today that Fed officials are committed to stimulus even as divergent views on when to start paring back bond purchases create a "mixed message" to investors.

Lockhart said, "There certainly seems to be an acute fixation on the timing of any adjustment to the asset purchase program and I guess I would just encourage everyone to not lose sight of the bigger picture." He went on to say, "Any adjustment is not a major policy shift. The high level of accommodation will stay in place."

Economies Addicted to Low Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

It is amazing so many investors are oblivious to the fact that the developed world is completely addicted to artificially-produced low interest rates. Perhaps that is why there is still a debate over whether the ending of QE will adversely affect the economy, and if rising rates can occur within the context of a healthy economy.

Fed Money Printing Real Conundrum! / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Robert_M_Williams

Back in the heady days of Alan Greenspan, when you couldn’t identify a bubble until it was too late, the Maestro was busy printing.  The money went into the tech stocks up until that train went off the tracks in early 2000. So the Fed started to print even more and that led to a housing bubble. As most of us are painfully aware, the housing blew up in 2007 so Greenspan’s predecessor, Ben Bernanke, had to put the printing press into a higher gear. The Fed then created mandates in order to justify the excesses and they included increased growth and employment. Unemployment must drop to 6% or less and growth must surpass 3% while keeping inflation at 2%. The end result of all this is a chart of the money supply that looks like this:

Funny Money Turns Serious / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Brady_Willett

When former Asian Development Bank head, Haruhiko Kuroda, was nominated to be the next Bank of Japan Governor on February 27, 2013 he was not shy about stating his intentions: “there is "plenty of room for monetary easing”” (WSJ). And after landing the job as BOJ Chief, Kuroda immediately confirmed that he would do “whatever it takes” to end deflation.  Well, a mere two months and a massive new printing scheme later, Kuroda is already on the defensive, arguing that a recent jump in bonds yields is manageable and asset prices are not behaving irrationally.

Why Bernanke and His Pals Are Terrified / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

Two big events have occurred/ are occurring.

1)   Chicago Fed President, Charles Evans who is one of the biggest pushers for QE, stated that the Fed has “the appropriate monetary policy in place” and that the economy is “improving quite a lot.”

2)    The Bank of Japan is beginning a two-day policy meeting today.

Regarding #1, Evans has been one of the biggest pushers for more QE. Throughout 2011 and 2012, every time he appeared on TV he stated that the Fed should do more.

A Reminder, the Fed Is NOT Printing Money / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Jesse

“So that the question is: Would there be any advantage, at this particular stage, in going back to the gold standard? And the answer is: I don't think so, because we're acting as though we were there.

So I think central banking, I believe, has learned the dangers of fiat money, and I think, as a consequence of that, we've behaved as though there are, indeed, real reserves underneath the system." Alan Greenspan, 20 July 2005

The Fed Admits it's Dug itself into a Very Big Hole / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Bloomberg

Charles Plosser, president of the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank, told Tom Keene and Sara Eisen on "Bloomberg Surveillance" today that "we've dug ourselves a very large hole" and that "when I've weighed the costs and benefits of this [quantitative easing] policy, I've decided that the costs outweigh the benefits."

Plosser also said that it is "disturbing" to him that "more and more is being expected of central banks." He said, "We are expected to solve all the world's problems. Our fiscal authorities are not doing a very good job in any country."

The Incredible Weight of Quantitative Easing Money Printing / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: DeviantInvestor

Skip the supposed theory and purpose of Quantitative Easing, and ask yourself what is its equivalent weight? Suppose we use the $85,000,000,000 per month that is officially acknowledged and round it to $1,000,000,000,000 per year and relate that $1 Trillion per year to items more easily understood.
