Global Assured Destruction, Or How Bernanke Now Holds The Entire World Hostage

Tyler Durden's picture

The one headline we have been waiting for for over four years has just hit:

  • BOK KIM SAYS WORLD MAY FACE RATE RISK IF U.S. EXITS FROM QE

Not when, if. And there you have it: if the Fed exits, the world (and most certainly Japan) gets it. Thus, for the sake of the children (who will have inhert about $100 trillion in debt but don't worry: debt is an asset as some "analysts" will promise) Bernanke can never exit. QE...D

And since never is a litte longer than 2016/2017, at some point in the next few years Bernanke will be the proud owner of all marketable Treasury paper. All of it.
