The guy in the White House is such an idiot he can't even figure out how to Schedule the damn speech much less what to say. Why not do a speech on JOBS on Labor Day? And get it broadcast on the radio as everyone is driving home with no other major news?

Tyler, please stop pushing the CHF, forward contracts on USD/CHF and EUR/CHF are getting too fucking expensive.

Why would somebody buy the CHF anyway? The SNB is sitting on hundreds of billions of fx reserves + We have a real estate bubble (real estate funds showing +/- 4% intraday, wtf??) + UBS and CS (amounting for ~ 800 % of swiss GDP) are on the verge of collapse.

Buy GOLD + SILVER, bitchez.

yep, and you are now using tyler's analysis, too!  but to currency traders, the swissie seems pretty strong, for now, and my unenlightened guess is that the SNB is not strong enuf (due to the rel size of the swiss econom?) to deal with it as the other fiats use it in their race to the bottom.

re this essay:

In fact, QE3 SHOULD take the form of the Fed having a 3 day offsite teach in with other branches of Government.

this sermonizing is, unfortunately, and meaning no disrespect to r_cert0, disinformation.

The SNB is desperate to make the Swissy weaker...consequence: money measures are exploding...This will hit back in form of a bursting bubble (real estate?) SOONER OR LATER.

Re. everyone knows the USD cant go under 70

Why not SheepDogBro?  Fuel they can manage.  Weren't you around to drive 55?

It could be rationed.

Bonuses and kicking the can is what it's all about.  Bonuses because w/o them, the Praetorian Guard walks and can kicking so more bag holders can get loaded up.

Interesting that your so adamant about this particular issue.  Let's see what happens.

Edit - and you too Caviar.  Not an idealogical dispute, but different perceptions of where the power lies.

I have repect for the two of you, but think you're off on this one.  It's like you're not cynical enough yet. 

Either way, we'll know what's up before the end of the month.

Or maybe youre too cynical and convinced every quarter they just roll out another couple trillion QE, and thats 'the plan'? I have no problem identifying exactly where the power lies, in Rome. This was all planned way before 2008 to implode the US into a 3rd world, no ones trying to fix anything and all thats left at this point is for them to pull the rug out stand by for false flag events real soon.

Rome???  You can't mean Silvio.  Do you mean the peadophiles???  They already have their hands full.  OK, they have that corrupt bank, but who doesn't these days?  The peadophiles in Rome are pulling Obummer's string?  Too funny SD1.

Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod work for the Vatican???

You're getting a major credibility downgrade unless you can a) elaborate or b) return the real SD1 to his avitar.

I know we are talking about Central Planners who always have to "do something" but I really don't understand how more money printing is going to create jobs.

If anything, more money printing will make things worse.

Especially since the 'more money' only goes to the top .001% - who then use it to buy up governments around the world - as is plainly seen in the USA governing model.

Everybody was overweighting the DAX in their Europe exposure, now we see the reverse trade. Additionally the DAX contains a lot of cyclical stocks (manufacturing, automotive, chemicals etc.), no surprise that they get hammered on the prospect of a new recession.

Or maybe we sould just close the fed, shut down the stock markets, let all the giant banks fail, let all the insolvent fortune 500 corporations that exist on paper crash and burn, and value our currency on something of real worth.

Then we end welfare, SS, and all government programs letting each locality figure  out how to deal with its citizens. f Detroit can't figure out how to work without turning into Ruwanda then that is not the fault of anyone in Nebraska.

The solution is massive decentralization and the spreading of power.

The Fed's 2 main mandates are Inflation and Full Employment - But in reality the ONLY mandate it follows is Save the TBTF vampire squid banking firms. So the Fed has reneged on it's Public mandates driving a nail in the US economy. Time to follow Chavez and NATIONALIZE!

As a vampire squid from long ago said ' give me control of a Nations Money and I care not who makes their laws.'. And yet we still sit here wrapped in chains wondering why we can't walk.

Debt forgivenenss and bankruptcy and zombie institutions will go under.

...with stakeholders in government like Congress, Treasury, Comptroller of Currency, FDIC, HUD, leaders of banks, mortgage companies and business interests. What the market is looking for is COMMUNICATION between stewards. This alone should encourage resolve, incentives, confidence, less uncertainly, productivity, uniformity and an EASING of collective psyche.

"Productivity" in government?  What exactly does government produce?

Gold is the only thing I understood in your entire article. I'm sure it is very well written but too erudite fo rmy simple American brain. All I know is gold and silver are continuously rising while the dollar loses purchaisng power every day, in every store, gas station, etc.

So gold and silver it is!
