Why the Fed Creates So Much Money / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the reasons behind the Federal Reserve creating so many trillions and trillions of dollars in new money is so the stock market will go up so that more taxes will be collected, and the bond market will go up so that more taxes will be collected (and less interest paid by issuers, too!), and the housing market will go up so that more taxes will be collected, and prices of everything will go up so that more taxes will be collected, so that massive, backbreaking, bankrupting deficit-spending by the government can continue going up.

America's "Money Time Bomb": Quantitative Easing is Inflationary / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith Ben Bernanke as our Shepard how can we go wrong? He tells us quantitative easing is not inflationary. He says that with assurance because he knows all the CPI statistics are as realistic as a Madoff Ponzi scheme. He also tells us he doesn’t create money out of thin air. He fails to mention that he does so digitally. His job is to further enrich the elitists who own the Fed and want to create a new world order. Prices are up 6-3/4% across the board as official inflation has only risen 1.2%.

Bernanke Denies Printing Money. Mogambo Not Convinced, Buy Gold / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo matter how much I try to calm down, I can't stop being angry about the unbelievable, towering arrogance of the horrid Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, when he actually said, "One myth that's out there is that what we're doing is printing money. We're not printing money. The amount of currency in circulation is not changing"!!

Fed’s Bullard Defence of QE2 is Full of Contradictions / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis was on CNBC Monday, December 20, 2010 mostly defending the Fed’s controversial $600 billion Treasury purchasing program (QE2) announced in Nov.

What struck me as totally self-contradictory were Bullard’s statements regarding the QE2, treasury yield, inflation expectations, and inflation, which I will outline and rebuff below.

What's Up At the Fed? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The last week was a full Federal Reserve soap opera, full of events and action that should appear suspicious to most anyone. 

First, the Federal Reserve complies with a request to release information about its emergency lending and monetary policy actions during the financial crisis, at which point it is found the Fed was willing to hand cash to just about anyone.  Next, Bernanke comes out on 60 Minutes, a very popular and watched program, to discuss quantitative easing three.  Has the chairman gone mad?

Debunking Bernanke’s QE Not Money Printing Myth / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his interview with “60 Minutes”, Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested it is a myth that quantitative easing implies printing money. With all due respect, Mr. Bernanke, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck!

Bernanke argues his policies do not amount to printing money, as neither currency in circulation, nor money supply has increased. This analogy is a bit like giving a loaded gun to a kid, then telling your friends that it’s not a deadly weapon because the shots that have been fired haven’t killed anyone. Granted, we are exaggerating here because, after all, it’s only money we are talking about. Yet, printing money may destroy one’s purchasing power and thus one’s life’s savings.

QE2, Beware the Perils of its Success / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: the bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen. … the bad economist pursues a small present good that will be followed by a great evil to come, while the good economist pursues a great good to come, at the risk of a small present evil. - Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

Modern Academic Economists Misinterpret Quantitative Easing / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Barry_Elias

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you are interested in promoting long-term, sustainable economic growth, I submit the velocity of money is more pertinent than the quantity of money (quantitative easing).

Apparently, many modern economists haven’t focused sufficiently on this economic parameter.

Ellen Brown Response to Gary North: QE2 IS the Populist Solution / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Ellen_Brown

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North, who purports to be an expert on the errors in my book “Web of Debt,” has evidently not actually read it.  In an article posted on the Market Oracle on November 23, he says that in calling QE2 (the Fed’s new quantitative easing program) a “bold precedent,” I have switched sides.  He apparently missed the entire chapter I wrote on this subject, first published in “Web of Debt” in 2007, saying exactly what I am saying now.

QE2 and The Great Economic Misdiagnosis, Insolvency Not Illiquidity / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe backdrop has turned dire on several front simultaneously. The great millstone around the USEconomy's neck continues to drag it down. CoreLogic reported 2.1 million units have created a swamp in Shadow inventory of the housing market. That equates to 23 months inventory, whereas normal is 7 months. They tallied the growing tumor of bank owned properties as a result of home foreclosures, also called the REOs (real estate owned). Look for no housing market recovery for at least another two years. Starting in summer 2007, the Jackass forecast each year has been for another two years of housing market declines, all correct. Ireland might be squarely in the news, but the big enchalada is Spain. The Irish banks have presented a grand headache for the European banks, with a $150 billion exposure. Ironically, Ireland has done more to reduce its budget spending effectively than any EU member nation, yet is left to twist in the soft rain. They cut their government budget by 20%.

Fed’s Bearish Outlook Justifies QE2 / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe minutes of the November 2-3 FOMC meeting include forecasts about real GDP, inflation, and employment from members of the FOMC. The main conclusion from the new forecast is that the Fed is less sanguine about the pace of economic activity in the final three months of 2010 and 2011 compared with the previous forecast (see table below).  The downward revision of growth and an upward revision of employment entirely justifies the announcement of the second round of quantitative easing of $600 billion.

Does the Fed Create Money? / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

Certain deflationists have recently gone on record saying that the increase in the Fed's balance sheet is meaningless with regard to creating inflation because our central bank can't print money, it can only create bank reserves. The problem with their view is that it both disregards the definition of money and ignores the process of creating bank reserves.

How the Fed Has Fooled Us with Quantitative Easing / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: With a second round of "quantitative easing" underway, the U.S. Federal Reserve wants us to believe that it is doing its duty as the nation's central bank – promoting maximum employment, keeping a lid on inflation and making sure that long-term interest rates remain at reasonable levels.

This is known as the Fed's "dual mandate," since the inflation and interest-rate objectives are really the same goal.
