The Hypocrite Of The Day Award Goes To...

Tyler Durden's picture

While we largely enjoy Dallas Fed's Dick Fisher hawkish, non-conformist thinking at the FOMC, and his willingness to come up with amusing cartoon names to explain the Fed's monetary policy (we are currently on Toy Story, and specifically Buzz "To Infinity and Beyond" Lighyear), we certainly do not miss when even said faux Fed bad cops telegraph hypocrisy so gruesome it shows demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt just how fake the facade of the Fed's "contrarians" truly is. To wit:


Riddle us this, Dick: just who is it that enables the US Lawmakers to fund trillion dollar deficits year after year at less than prohibitive terms, and more importantly, who is it that since 2009 has monetized virtually all 10 Year and longer gross issuance, thereby allow Congress to be a parasitic wastrel. Would you call that someone a "Wastrel enabler"?

Do you know who that someone is, Dick? Or is the question too complicated for a mere PhD mortal to answer?

Fisher is another fiat pimp.  What he says means nothing.

Moar Kabuki Theater. Anyone thinking anything is "unscripted" on Panem et Circensus Vision is still on Blue Pills.

Dick Fisher should mount his bayonet and lead the mutiny or have a slice of STFUcake.

Just bring in Yellen & let it ALL implode more quickly. Bernanke is certifiably insane and/or corrupt, but Yellen, if taken at her opinions' face value, is to monetary policy theory what Gary Busey is to classical philosophy.

Pissing off the transom of your (or preferably someone else's) yacht whilst under sail used to be called 'trolling for queers'.

So in retrospect I guess we were all 'Dick Fishers' back then.

He started on this about 2 months ago. Interview on bloombergTV. called them children.

The fed, the executive/treasury, and the legislature are the 3 stooges. In every episode:

  1. they start with good intentions. They try to work together. 
  2. Then they do really retarded, selfish stuff. 
  3. at first the damage is inward. 
  4. But then they are shown in isolation/seprately to be rational, good actors.  
  5. Then they regroup, destroying everything around them. 
  6. Each episode ends with them avoiding blame and escaping in some humorous way. Together.

The Fed could end the recklessness of Congress immediately in two easy steps.

1) End QE3

2) Raise interest rates.

Boom. Two things the Fed can do all on their own, right now. So, until you do that, Dick, shut your fucking mouth.

Of course, cos its like Star Wars 7

TruthInSunshine's picture

QE4 is to current monetary policy what Bernanke's bathtub is to the Pacific Ocean, and anyone who acts upon mention of CNBC's mention of QE4 could undoubtably find a way to drown in a bathtub.

it's fascinating to watch well groomed people in suits and ties engage in complete delusional discourse so casually.

Stocks are moving down - so what else can they do but hope that IQ's have dropped sharply since QE3 failed and that muppets will BTFD.

May I respectfully suggest that Hannity and Limbaugh also receive that award

When Hannity talks up Ron Paul is cos the whore has been paid to.
