Costs to QE? They're hard to find, writes Jon Hilsenrath, delivering a defense of The Chairman ahead of his Jackson Hole speech on Friday. Inflation? It hasn't materialized. The greenback? Its value has increased vs. a basket of other currencies. Bubbles? They don't exist, he contends, forgetting the Fed always says bubbles don't exist right up to the moment they blow up in our faces.

    Bubbles don't exist? He just lost all credibility.

    Hey Rupe, please do all of the loyal W.S.J. readers and get the ethic's back in this once mighty read!
    Send old Jonny boy over to the N.Y. Fed and let him hang with another shill for the serial bubble blowers Bill Dudley!


    Hilsenrath has become drunk with his OWN PERCEIVED self worth!
    Not only is he un credible but his total lack of objectivity is just to much to bear anymore!


    I can save a small fortune and just NOT renew my W.S.J. and Barrons subscriptions!


    Mike Santoli makes Cramer look almost cautious and Gene Epstein is not even readable anymore!
    What happened over there Rupert?
    Thomas Dolan and Ableson are the only thing worth reading anymore!
    You have a lot of work to do Rupe if you want to have any readers left!
    God awful news reporting,
    The Journal and Barrons!
