    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

You've clearly never heard of alternal dimensional worlds. According to that theory, every event creates one and creates alternal universes ALL CONTAINING ANOTHER EARTH!

If only we had a device to get there and rob them blind...

Do we really need a Ph.D. in eCONomics to figure out that when you create trillions of dollars, prices of almost everything go up?

Those are not the economy. Trading their stock does not create an economy, either.

I'm convinced that BEnron Shalom Israel Bernank is Satan. No other individual could lie and operate under false pretenses while causing the certain destruction of the entire global finance system. Hedge accordingly indeed.

He did, and he found flaws in Von Havenstein's methods, which he is correcting for the ongoing model run. We'll get back to you once the experiment is over. If you are still around and still in condition to care.

He keeps saying this in the hope that people will believe QE2 is responsible for the 78% rise in stocks so that as long as keeps doing QE people/traders/funds will keep buying stocks and he will look like a hero.

Wow, gold stocks are getting totally hammered into the bell.

Must be "pricing in" an end to QE pretty soon.

Poor General Jim really got busted over a boulder on that $1,650 prediction.

If only he purchased nvida geez' that was an easy call. They make the graphic chips for all the handhelds and tablets now with the new microsoft deal. Booyaaaa


Gold and the miners have done nothing since oct 20th ( miners = blowtorched )

If only general jim purchased AIG, BAC, NVDA, MIPS, SPRD, in december ( i did ) after gold started trading sideways .... Lol' Maybe another year or two of sideways movement like 2008-2009.


Turd told me 24 hours ago gold was going over $ 1,400.00 soon ??? WTF

You worthless P.h.D. You are worthless. I don't want a high stock market, I want to fill up my SUV and pay $25 not $100. I want to buy a house for what its worth not some bullshit price (which is I haven't purchased thanks to you) which is why I haven't hired anyone because your enabling of the U.S government is going to cause my taxes going up, either on paper, or via inflation. Which is why you have done nothing but stymie this recovery and caused decades of pain to come.

Single malt will go through the stratosphere on these commodity prices - and they have been ramping over the past few years.  Ding! Make a chart on prices on single malt over the past decade? Any takers?

I'd like Benny Boy to have a sit down with some that have been made aware.
