Hey, there are a billion ways to slice and dice 0.25. 

0.24% here we come. But really, who here thinks this ship will ever be taken off the rocks and be put back together again? Hu? That's hu.

It's done. Over. Humpty has taken a dumpty.

Thanks for link re the Professor:

"Gold is universally acceptable as a means of payment.

Watching gold is a good indicator of the stability of the system"

Yup - he also mentioned the counterparty risk factor. IOW, if you are watching gold - best to be doing it in closeup mode.

Raise short term rates. The USD will explode, and shoot the fear of GOD inTo the currency markets. OIL (#clj11) will pound into the 87 area.

No Chance.  People here need to realize the Fed works for the banks.  So, to accommodate the higher fuel prices (which the banks are 100% responsible for), they'll print MORE money, buy more bonds and further send the middle class to poverty.  Ah, the AMERICAN WAY!  My suggestion, put food and gas on your Chase credit card and dont pay it.  I know your slave score (credit score) may get damaged, but who really cares about that?  If you have a mortgage, stop paying it.  Take all your cash out of the banks and keep it at home, buy gold/silver, etc.......STARVE THE MOTHER FUCKING BEAST!!!

"The figures bandied about are eye-popping. When the Fed first embarked on its policy of asset purchases, known as quantitative easing, Goldman Sachs economists estimated Fed credit to the banking system might have to expand to as much as $4 trillion to $5 trillion in order to grapple with the scope of the financial crisis.

According to Meyer, the Goldman estimates were in line with those of Fed staffers. However, the central bank's policy committee saw this as complicating an eventual exit strategy, and stopped well short"....... from Reuters September 5 2010

An exit strategy will be complicated by design, the only unknown is the catalyst.

I tend to disagree simply because you ain't seen nothing yet. In six months, a year, two years we will look back at today and the two years since the market bottom and fondly remember how the Fed's damage looked so minor and repairable.

Twilight Zone?

Different dimension?

Or just another example of the failure of the American education system?

And this guy gets a huge bonus for saying crap like this ... so perhaps it isn't a failure after all.  LOL.

According to them we reached 70% labour cost. That means 2 things, chinese product is to expensive or Walmart gritters are paid too much. I guess we don't have choice of vendors so we have to reduce wages at all chinese resale enterprises. All military outfits are not affected for now.

I know! The banksters are gonna take the freshly printed money from a rate drop, use it to bid up the price of oil...and thereby obtaining the lions share of the product flow...and turn around and sell it to US refineries at a loss for the benefit of the American people!


Perhaps if we built a large wooden badger...

This is just another indicator that the so called "economic experts" is a totally isolated collection of the most ignorant groups of sick stupid fucks that can be amasses in one industry.  GIMME A BREAK!  Is this the epoch of what goes for "economic deucation and professionalism????

That meyers guy ought to be drug behind a pickup until it is just a bloody mess.  What a stupid fuck.  Lower interest rates??? From 0-.25% to what you fucking genius?

Nothing that makes my blood boil (and other citizens) is stupid fucks like this getting up and saying something so obviously stupid and then not ridiculed for it.  This fucker is toast in economic circles.  Which means he is a prime candidate for the FED RES or SEC or US Treasury.  TRUE?!
