    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.

It just don't matter if there will be QE 3 or QE 300.

Debtman will soon retire.

After that, Robbin takes over.

Funny though. Anyone who is saying that QE will end is also probably selling something. Most likely in the form of put options...

QE3 is 100% coming!!  But they could delay the announcement or state that QE will be ending sending the markets where they want them to go. 

The movement in the markets will again give them an easy sell of QE3. 

I am trying to say there could be a big dip in the prices of commodities before QE3 is announced or some kind of back door QE resumes.

My growing idea is that we will go to QE2 lite in June, i.e., no new QE but the Fed will not allow its balance sheet to shrink.  It's what they did before.  If oil and other commodities keep soaring, and with the Ron Pauls getting more traction, I don't think QE3 will be politically viable come June.  Maybe later in 2011 or 2012.  Thoughts?

QE3 will be a really hard sell with oil over 100.   I think they will do more of a QE lite or some kind of back door QE.

You never know. I remember this conference where an old timer recalled the story of the early 80s with Volcker cranking the rates up to what, 18% ? Nobody expected that to happen ever, and people though the world was going to end as well.

In the 1980s there was no housing bubble the FED is trying to prop up and banks that were insolvent.  If the FED raised rates, as they should, the banks would fail again.

As extreme as it may seem, I'm afraid it's needed for the global economic recovery to sustain.

A little inflation never harmed anyone. According to Dr. Paul Krugman PhD and Dr. Barack H. Obama, a high inflation (>20%) could even make Americans wealthier.

in nominal terms...not REAL terms.....thats the FEDs plan, bonehead

There is no difference between real and nominal. 

Some people say that inflation is a bad thing, but they're often lunatic, bigot, nerdy libertarians. 

Actually, inflation is what makes people richer. The Weimar Germany experience was not a failure. This is a libertarian lie. 

Most Germans got wealthier during the 1922-1923 period, and it was also very good for equities.

Not quite sure what you're referencing in terms of inflation.

  Actually, inflation is what makes people richer.

You should move to Zimbabwe since inflation is such a good idea. Most likely Robert Mugabe will make you a minister in his cabinet. One thing for sure, you will be much richer!! To be precise, instant multi-trillionaire!!

Mr Wanger,

 Wages/income will not keep pace with POMO induced inflation, nor will interest rates. Are you the guy buying the 5 year TIPS at -0.65%?

Bob, too much soy will severely decrease your testosterone levels and possibly/definitely give you man boobs.

Soy Milk is no good. Soy is only healthy when nicely fermented.
