Bernanke in his office, "The macro data is getting worst? I don't buy it. Cleatus, fire up the presses! It is going to be a long night."

So who wins the "race to debase"?  The suspense is killing me.

No one wins that race.

Politicians think they do.

if you are over weight more food is not the answer.  If you are drowning more water is not going to help. If the economies of the world are faltering under the weight of debt more debt is not the answer.


Its common fucking sense.

If you get paid to fail to understand these things, then you wont.  Pretty easy, really.
