    Sounds like a lymeric don't it, no it's another dumb thing the Fed Reserve has

    come up with to save the economy, like pumping more water through a leaky pipe to fix it


    Will Quantitative Easing By The Federal Reserve Unleash Economic Hell?

    Prior to the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008, the Federal Reserve could always count on being able to stimulate the U.S. economy with a quick cut to interest rates. But now with interest rates just barely above zero, the Federal Reserve is searching for other ways to pump life into a U.S. economy that is staggering about like a drunken college student. One of the ways that the Federal Reserve can do this is through something called "quantitative easing". In essence, what happens is that the Federal Reserve creates money out of thin air and starts buying things like U.S. Treasuries, mortgage-backed securities and corporate debt. But many economic analysts are now warning that further rounds of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve could end up setting off a series of events that could ultimately unleash economic hell. In fact, there are quite a few high profile commentators who now believe that hyperinflation in the United States is absolutely inevitable.

    For those not familiar with quantitative easing, Wikipedia has a pretty good definition....

    The term quantitative easing (QE) describes a form of monetary policy used by central banks to increase the supply of money in an economy when the bank interest rate, discount rate and/or interbank interest rate are either at, or close to, zero.[citation needed] A central bank does this by first crediting its own account with money it has created ex nihilo ("out of nothing").[1] It then purchases financial assets, including government bonds, mortgage-backed securities and corporate bonds, from banks and other financial institutions in a process referred to as open market operations.

    But is it really a good idea for a privately-owned central bank to have the power to create money out of nothing and to do whatever it wants with it outside of U.S. government control?

    Of course not, but we dealt with those issues in another article.

    What we will concern ourselves with in this article are the negative effects that could be unleashed as the Federal Reserve further abuses this power.

    Now keep in mind that disasters don't usually happen overnight. They usually build over time. When the Federal Reserve begins new rounds of quantitative easing, it will take time for the effects to be felt.

    And so far, the new quantitative easing measures that the Federal Reserve has implemented have been relatively mild....

    *The Federal Reserve has announced that it will "continue to roll over the Federal Reserve’s holdings of Treasury securities as they mature".

    *The Federal Reserve has also announced that it has decided to reinvest principal payments on mortgage holdings into U.S. Treasury securities.

    *The Federal Reserve Bank of New York announced on Wednesday that it will purchase $18 billion in U.S. Treasury securities between now and mid-September.

    But most analysts are expecting quantitative easing by the Fed to accelerate - especially if the U.S. economy continues to flounder.

    So is there a reason we should be concerned about all of this?

    Well, yes there is.

    Marc Faber, the author of "The Gloom, Boom and Doom Report", recently warned CNBC that all of this intervention by the Federal Reserve is going to create a "final crisis" that will destroy the U.S. financial system....

    "Investors should have listened to me already six months ago when I wrote that the Fed will continue to monetize … they will print and print and print until the final crisis wipes out the whole system."

    In a recent article, Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster described some of the financial gymnastics that our "financial authorities" go through just to keep the current shell game going....

    But first, we ignore things like monthly hundred billion plus mathematical discrepancies between the amount of the government's deficits and the amount of treasury bonds being sold. Then we give the proceeds from the bogus excess treasury sales to foreign countries, foreign central banks and sovereign wealth funds as well as Cayman Island hedge funds so they can do what with it?
    Why, so they can buy US treasury paper and agency paper, among other things. Yep, we set up the straw men, fund them with counterfeit money illegally created out of thin air beyond what is needed to fund the ever-increasing deficit being created by the drunken sailors running the US government, and we then magically create categories of new mega-buyers in our financial reports to show everyone how our treasury paper is just as
    "beloved" as in the old days. Why, even the totally bankrupt UK has magically created $180 billion for the express purpose of buying up those treasuries to keep the whole rip-off party going.
