Just sharing what's out there. You decide.
However, this is also out there. Again, you decide.
The Fed’s ongoing bond purchases have helped lower interest rates and pumped newly created money into the economy helping support an economic recovery.
Stocks in Europe had been trading down slightly but moved higher after the U.S. non-farm payrolls figures roughly met market expectations.
Relief rallies on staving off the so-called “fiscal cliff” faded in Europe and the U.S. after the Fed minutes Thursday showed that officials were divided about how long to continue its extraordinary stimulus measures.
So, do you think the Feds printing more money is the solution to this economy?
Or will it devalue the dollar sooner than later?
I have no doubt that both parties are actively and in concert working towards monetizing the debt, an action that has historically led to financial catastrophes like the '08 crash. That we've only had tiny flirtations with deflation tells me that inflation may only be held at bay by the frigidity of the credit market and that once that market thaws completely inflation will take off. I'd expect it to resemble the 70's only worse.
