From the Fed official who was in charge of bond purchases:
"Ex-Fed official:'I'm sorry for QE'"
There's a real question as to whether the benefits of monetary easing were worth the cost, former Federal Reserve official Andrew Huzar says. There's a real question as to whether the massive bond-buying program known as quantitative easing was worth the cost, former Federal Reserve official Andrew Huszar said Tuesday.
"My argument is not that QE was not at all useful," he said on CNBC's "Fast Money."
"I believe that at the time, it was just one more tool that the Fed introduced to try to help the economy," he said. "My point, ultimately, is the idea that very quickly turned into QE, it started becoming obvious that it wasn't working in any of the ways that it was supposed to."
Huszar, a senior fellow at Rutgers Business School and a former managing director at Morgan Stanley, noted a few of the program's unintended effects.
"I think the real issue is that the Fed has expanded its tool kit so dramatically, and really there are some real questions as to how potentially it unwinds, when it unwinds," he said. "We saw this past summer there was this announcement of a potential taper and the markets actually tanked, and after that the Fed backpedaled. What's going to happen if we go on for months, years longer?"
Huszar apologized for his role in QE in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Monday.
"I can only say: I'm sorry, America," he wrote. "The central bank continues to spin QE as a tool for helping Main Street. But I've come to recognize the program for what it really is: the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time."
Who gonna pay for it? You know it not gonna be corrupted TOo Big to Fail but little Taxpayers be one to finance Financial malfeasance...

<quoted text>Whoa! I sure can't agree that they are the underdogs. If they thought along practical lines at all there wouldn't be any disagreement and things would happen that please them. By being practical I mean that you can't run a whole bunch of people out of their life's work in order to preserve one species of fish. You can't pour money into forms of energy that people refuse to use. you don't starve people in order to save an animal. Which makes me think that extreme environmentalists are like the protectors of the sacred cow. If people have to die to preserve that cow is it worth it? Or should we keep looking for measures that really do work?
Come on Lisw , Energy_saving patent or of-the-grid Energy patents are often being denied to public by greedy and Monopolistic Petro Multi-conglomerates for a very good reason, and Oil lobby also paid off Congress ... And if someone invent a new and innovative Energy-off-the -grid PAtent that can power everything in your home without a monthly energy bill, as those big conning and greedy energy Companies, energy investment firms, lobbies ,... they will buy it out or steal it or kill the inventor and never let the energy invention out into Consumer markets worldwide for very good reasons !

I could spend three solid days linking you to the destruction of our only world, but you don't really care, or you'd do it yourself.
As for 'cheap shots', all I did was post a fact. The planet exists. Tangibly, and incontrovertibly.
Care to prove me wrong...have at it.
Providing links to examples of environmental degradation proves ZERO. Nobody supports unnecessarily damaging the natural world.One can support addressing legitimate concerns without engaging in scaremongering. Gross exaggeration is what most accurately describe any number of organizations touting environmental protection,not to mention the abuses by the EPA and assorted state agencies.

They are the underdogs and in many cases have become justifiably desperate. In many cases they are fighting a war nobody thinks exists. Nobody knows who to turn to or what the best solution is. None of this is a reason for extremism but it, imo, helps explain the why.
Desperate people do desperate things.
Remove the desperation and you just might remove the extremism.
Agree?
The reasons they are ignored is their long history of gross misrepresentations.People give them the benefit of the doubt as acting with good intentions.In too many cases nothing could be further from the truth. GW Bush was blamed for the levees failing in N.O. because he "didn't care about black folk". So the army corps continually delayed reconstruction which may have made a difference when Katrina struck.But wait ,the Sierra Club along with other enviros filed suit to prevent the army corps from rebuilding and repairing the levees causing the delay. Do they get called to answer ? Of course not.The list is endless.Dave Foreman the founder of Earth First,famous for tree spiking,years afterward acknowledged enviros being their own worst enemies due to blatant dishonesty.

Oil, coal, and nuclear power companies WHOLEHEARTEDLY support damaging the natural world. They do it every day, and they're not looking to stop any time soon. Who do you think you're kidding here?

The EPA is a joke, and has been in the pocket of the energy companies, textile companies, auto manufacturers, etc. etc. etc. for 7 decades.

Those photos are gross alright...but they're not exaggerations.

No, no, no, no no...Hey, back up the ship! I didn't say anything about wanting a federally goverened healthcare plan. I don't want a federally funded plan for this country! Health care >reform< and aiding those without health insurance is not remotely the same thing as a federally goverened healthcare plan. Blech- patooey! Don't you dare put me in the mix with those who think the federal government can handle your health care better than the individual can. That would make me a liberal democrat and my brain rejects that idea.

Eh?
If only people had listened to what he said? I'm afraid they did:

“The more people, in my judgment, exaggerate a threat of safety and soundness, the more people conjure up the possibility of serious financial losses to the Treasury, which I DO NOT see. I think we see entities [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] that are fundamentally sound financially and will withstand some of the disaster scenarios.”

In a report on the safety and soundness of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from their regulator, Falcon, Frank attacked Falcon:“I don’t see anything in your report that raises safety and soundness problems.”

"I think this is a case where Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, that they are not in danger of going under. I think they are in good shape going forward. They're in a housing market. I do think their prospects going forward are very solid."

You are being willfully ignorant sis. Exaggeration? Hmmm like saying an agency that began operations in 1970 as being in the pocket of business for 7 decades? You're a bit ahead of yourself as well as a zealot as evidenced by labeling the too powerful and intrusive EPA as being in the pocket of business. You are the problem.

I sure hope you don't use any electricity, drive anywhere or buy anything in any store. You go back to the 1900s and live a simple life without the nasty comforts all of the above gives us. I won't join you.
