Despite Declining Deficit, Foreigners Aren’t Bailing Us Out, So the Fed Will Keep QE Going / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Casey_Research

By Bud Conrad, Chief Economist

The basic imbalance driving our economy is the government deficit, which spun out of control as a result of the Credit Crisis of 2008/9. But the sequester, improving tax base, lower interest rate, and elimination of stimulus spending have caused the big government deficit, while still extreme, to drop to half its previously nosebleed levels.

The End of QE - What Ben Bernanke Is Really Saying / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Ever wonder what Bernanke is saying? Well, it boils down to this: at the same time that Jimmy Carter says the US doesn't have a functioning democracy, Ben Bernanke says the US doesn't have a functioning economy.

Unfortunately, people understand what Carter says, though they may not agree with him, but they do not understand what Bernanke says, and that has nothing to do with agreeing with him or not. Moe likely it has something to do with the illusionary oracle qualities once attributed to his predecessor Alan Greenspan, whenever no-one had a clue what he was saying. In reality, Ben Bernanke will turn out to be the biggest scourge on American society since the same Alan Greenspan, but that's not how he's seen; instead, just like Greenspan, he's idolized. What's wrong with this picture is that Bernanke's words and actions are interpreted in the press exclusively by people who live in the part of society that stands to profit from them, let's call it "the financial world". That they are but a very small part of society easily gets lost in translation.

Dangerous Excess - QE Fiscal Easing Past And Present / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE ASSIGNAT BUBBLE AND QE
One of our problems is easy to state but very dramatic. There are no real precedents for what is called Quantitative Easing as it is practiced since 2008. Central bankers such as Bernanke, Draghi, Carney and their partners in almost all other countries are engaged in The Great Experiment.

Unfortunately, based on all past history, the chance of it not ending badly or very badly, is minimal.

Bernanke Testimony Sends Mixed Signals on QE3 / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: Call it Ben Bernanke's Alan Greenspan moment.

As his predecessor as Federal Reserve chairman had often done, Bernanke sent decidedly mixed and unclear signals today (Wednesday) in testimony before Congress.

The Bernanke testimony, in prepared remarks delivered to the House Financial Services Committee, provided nothing close to a definitive answer on whether the Fed would scale back quantitative easing in September.

Why QE3 Hasn’t Triggered Inflation – So Far / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: When you pump massive amounts of money into an economy, as the U.S. Federal Reserve has done with QE1 through QE3, you're supposed to get some measure of inflation.

And yet despite some $2.3 trillion of quantitative easing since 2008, the core inflation rate has actually fallen over the past year from about 2.25% to 1.7% as of May.

QE, The Velocity of Money And Dislocated Gold / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

From time to time, it's nice to look at a series of graphs, and let them tell their thousand words worth - each - of stories. In this case, I started out looking at US monetary base at the St.Louis Fed website and it sort of went from there. Curious trends and intriguing numbers, beyond what I would have thought. To refresh memory and avoid confusion, first a few definitions:

When the Fed Might Start Tapering QE / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Frank Marchant writes: Although you might think the markets simply respond any time Ben Bernanke sneezes, his "cold cycle" is not one of the indicators that will spell the slowing and eventual cessation of the printing press at the Fed.

There actually is a mathematical formula used by the Federal Reserve to determine when to stop the presses.

The Dark Side of the QE Circus / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Andy_Sutton

There may come a day soon where the markets sell off if one of the whiskers in Big Ben’s beard is out of place. Or perhaps if his tie is a bit crooked. Or maybe we end up with Janet Yellen as the next puppet in charge over at the local banking cabal and we fret about her hairdo. I don’t know, but one thing that is for certain is that this central bank so wants to be loved and we are so under psychological attack with all of this QE nonsense that it isn’t even funny.

Vast $2.6+ Trillion Quantitative Easing (QE) to End? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: DK_Matai

An unprecedented monetary policy so supportive of US and global recovery has now begun to turn, as indicated recently by the Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke.  The step-by-step halt and exit from this type of multi-trillion-dollar QE remains untried and untested, so we remain in totally uncharted waters in regard to unintended consequences.  Is there huge market volatility next?  Most probably, yes!  Just watch the long term interest rates rising as there was no real sterilisation of this massive injection of money supply in trillions of dollars over the last five years on top of the $800+ billion total Federal Reserve balance sheet inherited in March 2008.

How to Play the Fed’s New QE Tapering Policy / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

Alexander Green writes: It’s amazing just how often – and how effectively – the media and its various talking heads get investors to take their eye off the ball. (In case you don’t play golf or baseball, taking your eye off the ball causes anything from a shank to a whiff.)

Right now, for instance, the topic du jour is “When will the Fed begin ‘tapering’ its bond-buying program and how should I play it?”

Bill Gross: Why QE Will End Before the Fed Wants It To / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: Legendary bond guru Bill Gross doesn't think too highly of the Federal Reserve and Ben Bernanke's monetary policies.

"There comes a point when no matter how much blood is being pumped through the system as it is now, with zero-based policy rates and global quantitative easing programs, that the blood itself may become anemic, oxygen-starved, or even leukemic, with white blood cells destroying more productive red cell counterparts," Gross writes in his June investment outlook titled Wounded Heart.

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.

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

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.

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."

It is amazing so many investors are oblivious to the fact that the developed world is completely addicted to artificially-produced low interest rates.

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:
