    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.”

Whatever happens JPM & GS will profit.


1) They will know in advance what the fed is going to do.

2) They used all the loss reserves and income for bonuses so if somehow they do lose they will get another bailout.

"What happens if there is no QE3?"

The US defaults.

I propose in anticipation of the US default, you all ship you good looking woman to Europe.

They can serve the Europeans as cleaning ladies and in return they can send a part of their paycheck back home to support the family.

The cost of living will be kept as low as possible for them. They can sleep in the bed of their masters, and if they produce babies they'll also get a bonus for the donation to the stem-cell clinics.

The proposal is inherently flawed...  you expect a good looking american woman to lift a finger in the home?  You'd have more luck just printing an ad looking for prostitutes/escorts...  at least there isn't any misconception...

Zeno disagrees, but you may be right--the Chairsatan is on a train of printers that is inching closer and c-l-o-s-e-r to the speed of light.

They cannot and will not stop printing, if they do.....Total Collapse! Rosie just stated the obvious but only very mild! The FEDs put themselves into a corner from which there is no escape, the only way is DONW and B(D)UST!

Two results can come from this:
1) Continue printing. Inflation will collapse margins sending companies into a tailspin.
2) Stop printing. Debt deflation occurs along with a default. Pick your poison Chairsatan.

I think we've got a few more months before the likely summer stagnation/correction when QE2 ends and before QE3 is officially announced. Summer 2011 shall be one great BTFD.

I hope  "The ones who were switching out of equities, commodities, and other risk-assets." have a lot of money, 'cos Ben has quite a few trillions in new issues he needs to find buyers for over the next few years.  Personally, I think Rosie is being overly optimistic in assuming that there's enough free cash on the planet, absent the Chairsatan and his printing press, to soak up the supply.  There will be more QE because there has to be.

Hardly. It has to grow through POMO circuit. Or it's not on FED books. Which other way is there. Those primary dealers will never do it w/o official FED cover. No way.

They will simply extend QE2, First by slowing their purchases in the last 2 months to 50 or 75 Billion and stretching the original 600 bil for an extra couple of months, then by continuing at that rate through the end of the year...Unless equities get cracked this spring--due to MENA, European Sov Debt, or some other issue--which I would put at 50% minimum probabililty.

WW3 is already on! It's the monetary war raging. You're referring to WW4 the military hardware war when WW3 is over, and presumably the US/FED the loser.

there is simply no feasible alternative to monetization. the die is cast. the Fed's real goal? no, not the ignition of investor risk appetite, but the devaluation of the dollar, hyper-inflation and with it the implosion of the US economy and unprecedented massive social chaos upon the ash heap and rubble of which to build the Novus Ordo Saeclorum.

Ugh, not the New World Order again. Remind me who would be on the governing council of the New World Order. The reason there will be no global New World Order is that presumably it would not be an efficient way to run the world. Economic output would decline, right? The world is already on the brink of global revolution because there are too many poor people who can't afford food and energy. And you suppose that when the New World Order makes people more poor, more hungry, and colder that they will just sit around passively? No fucking way. Your New World Order would last about two months and then be followed by New World Peasant Revolt.

The New World Order comes after the revolts and WW3.  It is after the mass die off.  See the Georgia Guidestones.  Maintain world population under 550 million!  That means over 6 billion must die.  Ten thousand will fall at your left and ten thousand at your right.

2. Pledge treasuries as repo collateral.

3. Goto 1.

No QE necessary. John Law engaged in a similar scheme.
