99% of America does not even know what America's policy stance is regarding the dollar.

True, 99% of americans couldnt define 'inflation' or have any what 'QE' is or any of the rest of it....theyre told all is well and prices havent shot up yet so they feel no pain on 99 weeks of unemployment. And thats why the FED and Wall St and govt can get away with what theyre doing. Hell, most americans today feel they WON something by the meet the new boss same as the old boss election!

I think Mariana's breasts are a good example of inflation through quantitative silicone easing.

Peter Schiff will be proven right again....  We are flooding the world with dollars, creating distortions everywhere, and eventually they will say FU to the dollar.

And here is a gratuitous picture of Marina Mantega. Perhaps now America will finally listen.

Can she dance? Put her on dancing with the stars then you can reach the U.S. public

That's ADMIRAL Bernanke, MOFO!  (When I'm not "Huggy Bear Bernanke with my honey's and homey's of course.)  Now--"who's gonna play Liberace"?  Originally I was going to cast Warren Buffet as he "testifies before Congresss."  I'm still sticking with that.  I am being serious btw.

And if you knock one of those fine young ladies up no extradition till the kid is an adult. Or just get citizenship by marring one.

Will say I would love her telling me about monetary policy...hell maybe if she did the TV heads might listen :)

The worst response was from China's Xia and Japan's Shirkawa or whatever the EFF his name is- "The Fed's QE is nothing compared to what we will bring to the table..."

Let the wars begin!

What the Fed is doing isn't Quantitative Easing...

... the more apt term is "Quantitative Sleazing".

If China does come to the table with something to counter the Sleazing effect, this is going to end up being more costly than a $600 billion stealth tax increase.

That is why according to my "theory", the situation will be self perpetuating until the last man is standing. At which time, the entire world is thrown in chaos and pandemonium. That being said, I expect a war to break out well in advance of that.

Perhaps those with the least possessions will fare the best! Which brings me back to the simple life of africans and such peoples who will fare much better than lazy americans who can't live 2 hours without a TV remote control or microwavable pizza.

Funny, but that is not the point. Without technology and advancements in pharmacology, the average american won't last a few days without his "flu shots" and Advil. Please, don't get me started on how many people I know are on 3-4 meds "to keep the alive." Bloodpressure meds, cholesterol meds, antiangina meds etc etc.

 

I'm not advocating moving to Afrika or putting yourself in that situation but rather, cutting back to bare essentials... get ready to do without them.

I agree. I've cut back to the two bare essentials in my life: good sex and healthy food.

Well said!  If I'm going to be poor, I'd rather be around people who know how to be poor than a bunch of formerly spoiled but presently shell shocked Americans.  At least experienced poor people know what's important in life.

Tyler, could you please dig up a few videos clips from CNBC from earlier this year in which NUMEROUS analysts said the Euro was in freefall and would reach parity with the dollar. They should be shamed too.

Back in 2008, I called the fall of the EURO and said the EURUSD would hit at least 1.20, perhaps 1.10. I didn't know what would happen after that.

 

Now, I have been able to map out the next few months- the EURUSD should rise until the bad news leaks out that Greece is allowed to default, along with Ireland and Portugal. The ECB will say that things "are worse than they expected" and the EURUSD will hit 1.20 once again, until the next round of QE III which I expect to be within 6 months as they STEP up their purchases and the dollar falls to 1,45 again.
