Tyler Durden's picture


And in lieu of any rumors out of Europe (they have all been exhausted, plus nobody believes anything out of the doomed continent), here is our own Fed with its best attempt to talk the market up, via Bloomberg:

CBO Director Doug Elmendorf admitted to Senator Sessions that in the long run the stimulus will shrink the economy.  He testified at a  Senate Budget Committee hearing that the stimulus will indeed “be a drag on GDP” over the next ten years.  Any diligent student of history already knew that, but now we have the “gold standard” of budget and economic scoring to affirm that self-evident truth.  Nevertheless, fear not, the stimulus will have a stimulating effect in the short-term.  That’s why we are enjoying a robust annual average GDP growth of…..1.4%.

I know this is going to sound really naive, but seriously maybe this is all just jaw boning to keep some air in this bubble for a little longer. The shorts are scared to death to go in and it doesn't take much of a threat from the Fed to keep them passive. It just seemed to me that in the last couple of speaches that Bernanke gave, without directly admitting he was wrong, he acknowledged that QE had caused a commodity price spike.

Shame they don't understand that the Fed is NOT going to QE3 with stocks still over 12,000 - Bernank isn't going to do that until there's another crisis, for me that means the Dow down near 10,000, S&P back at 1040.

sarkozy couldn't tell cheddar from comté, he is in the zerogovt brigade now; what a gadget man he has turned out to be. I'll fix it, I'll fix it, speedy gonzales. Now it's been fixed as bunga Berlu is gone but the fix is deeper in dipshit than in dimsum and its hitting spanien. 

Never mind...he'll fix it, like he fixed greeeeeeeeeeeeeece.

So, just wondering how this new government exists in Italy.  It is just a bunch of unelected bankers running the show....huh?


I know that is the reality everywhere, but shouldn't they at least pay lip service to the quaint concept of an elected government?

This is awesome.

Because if the FED wants to become the ONLY issue for the 2012 election it should definately help rescue Europe. 

Four day school weeks for American (winning the future) kids, and the fed bails out Europe. 

You really can't make this shit up.

  • Of course not. But never would he get the idea that central banks can't solve economic problems period, and should thus get out of the way.

    Would someone explain to me how people like Bill Gross can say the Fed is out of bullets.  Am I missing something here?  The Fed have the ability to create endless USD out of air, or just hitting the enter button.  How can they be out of ammo?  They can print to fuck'n infinity and they will... that's the only solution to the lowering the true value of US debt other than a default which they will never allow.  Am I wrong here, please tell me?

    With all due respect, I do believe that you may be not wrong, but mistaken. The problem that Bernanke had during QE2 when last the printers were at full capacity was that none of the money flowed through to the economy. Too much of it went directly into the paper commodity markets and artificially ramped up the price of everything you need to make anything. That caused huge margin compression for manufacturers, and gutted the discretionary income of all we little people. Not what a struggling economy needs. I think that thanks to sites like ZH when the price of things starts to rise when there is no latent demand to be found anywhere,people are beginning to connect the dots. That's my HO if that helps at all.

    Thanks Smithy.  Makes total sense to me, but I still find it very hard to believe that Bernanke and company will not run the presses full tilt to generate any type of inflation that will destroy the dollar and value of US debt.

    this is like the scenario in "the good the bad and the ugly".

    The good is China, the bad is USA and the ugly is Euro.

    The good tells the ugly to dig and dig, and then shoots the bad into the hole.

    Are we in that movie..? Cos the ugly is digging and digging very deep...

    and the bad is getting nervous that the body in the ditch will be his TBTF banksta bunch sucked into contagion hole.

    This looks spot on script. Who falls first into ditch is labelled "bad". Then the film goes "THE END", and the good guy rides away with the gold. Leaving the ugly standing, hanging in mid air.
