This Is Your Economy... On Drugs

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The last few years have seen over $10 trillion in global central bank liquidity 'drugs' pumped into the system of the world's economy.

 

Some may remember the '80s commercial, "this is your brain on drugs;" we suspect, after looking this chart below, they will want to "just say no" to the Fed...

 

This is your brain... on drugs...

 

And this is your economy... on drugs...

(h/t @Not_Jim_Cramer)

Just say No (to the Fed).

Sadly, it actually is, since bad GDP growth = QE on = BTFATH.

Dayumm.

  If I didn't have so much faith in Yellen/Berstanky, I'd say that was a trend line.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Entitlement with no limits, leads to the frustration of broken promises, dreams, and a sense of not having much to show or say in the end. The Fed is all of these.

Imagine how much worse GDP would be if it wasn't for QE.  /sarc

But, we just had a 3.6% print on GDP yesterday. Surly the numbers aren't cooked. /sarc

I thought we only had to suffer through Hope and Change. You mean we have to suffer through Faith too?

Anyhow, faith is used by the NWO to enslave their enemies. Dude haven't you seen Hunger Games yet?

Yellen will be the Fed chairman everyone hates. QE will end.

When has a recent FED chair even know what a punch bowl is, much less how to remove it?

No prob, everything's cool. The chart just indicates that it's time to get high again. We can probably score something good down at POMO Park.

Good thing that the bottom of the chart will stop it from going lower.

Now interest rates are going WAY up.

@ wisehiney:

I rotated the chart 90 degrees counterclockwise ('anti-clockwise', for those in the City), and saw the same chart as the boost in United States deficit spending in the past, well, forever. It looked like a future graph of interest rates, as well. Weird, huh?

'The bottom of the chart will stop it from going lower'...like the 'line in the sand' will stop those pesky al-ciaduh terrorists.

Wow.  If that is what was accomplished with $12 trillion in stimulus and guarantees think what they could accomplish with $100 trillion!

Msrs. Yellen has probably already run the calculations (in her alchemist robes no doubt).

The FED has used taxpayer money to pay Wall Street a minimum wage of $85 Billion/month and people are worked up about fast food workers striking for $15 an hour.

The psy-ops are proceeding quite well, apparently.

The banks get all the heroin they need.

Trickle down?  My leg!

Oh...and just now I saw an AIG commercial on CNBC wishing me "Happy Holidays".

FUCK....

Whatever is trickling down, is evaporating before it reaches the hobnails.

$10 trillion?

China has pumped $15 trillion by itself!

So, try $25+ trillion sloshing around!

On the bright side: 1.4 percent GDP is only half as difficualt to produce with financial fraud than 3 percent.

Who cares what the ENTIRE country's GDP is.   What matters is what the top 10%'s GDP is.

The losers in the bottom 90% don't matter.

Is that 1.4% before the real inflation rate? So really we have a negative GDP growth.
