Bernank is killing it as a comedian! Killing it!

That's his real calling in life! Shit, who knew the bearded Keynesian mutant could be so damn hilarious?

Maximum employment and price stability sounds pretty good. Why only the medium term? Why not short and long term also?

What is the definition of temporary? Transitionary? IN time frames?

3-6 month? 6m-1 year? 2-4 years? Any ideas?

"Transitory" is a relative is the term "solvent"...neither of which apply to the US/World economy.

it is somewhere between a nanosecond and a light year... (and i chose a small unit of time and large measure of distance on purpose answering that one... straight from Der Benanks handbook - smoke and mirrors... and printing presses)

For your information... Nixon was saying in his infamous speech that they were going to take the USD off the gold backing temporary. That was 1971.

Your transitory events have lasted since pre-history. 50,000 years since there has been anything to pillage but stealing goes back much further.

Sunshine is as true as the breeze. Both are needed for plants and plants are needed for every other living thing.

So everything thats already failed, just do-over again! Wow should work great and fool lots of people into believing their Ramen noodles are lobster and filet.

Ramen noodles have less saturated fat and are lower in calories than lobster and filet mignon dinners, so The Bernank, Jeethner & NerObama know what's best for us.

We're richer and healthier!

I have advised Chairman Bernancke that QE3 is only a start.  We also need a $5 trillion stimulus to create or save millions of shovel-ready jobs.

In your defense, I can see the logic of spending $5T asap.  May as well get some dirt moved while you still can buy a shovel with $USD!  Preempt the FED and bankers!  If we are going to drop money from helicopters, at least hover over mainstreet rather than wallstreet.  burn.

Excellent advice Mr. Krugman. May I be so bold to suggest that your bastardized Keynesian brilliance be utilized to gain political support for the FED simply hiring every unemployed/underemployed person in America, paying them $30,000/yr each for a two year period. The FED would only have to extend its balance sheet by another 2T (which is less than the amount handed to the Elites) - and the 30,000,000 newly employed Americans can be put to work providing massages and hand-jobs to the about your economic stimulation!!!

T.E.I.N. everyone!
