Key to Bernanke's view of the economy is his belief cyclical rather than structural issues are behind the weakness in the labor market.

    Of course he is going to have to buy MBS when all those bank owns clear. First sell them cheap to his buddies 10 cents on the dollar then support them wth new MBS so they can sell them. Plus the rumor makes the market go up.S0 is it going to be S&P 1440,1477,or 1525. Don't know don't care. Just looking to buy in when it comes down. It will eventualy....late 2012 or early 2013 who knows maybe somewhere in between. No risk no reward.

    He's going to say whatever he wants to justify flooding the market with excess money, whether it's true or not. I can't wait to see all the central banks try to unwind their positions... oh wait, that'll never happen because the economy will always remain "far from normal". Thanks Benny.
