Irwin Kellner thinks the Fed should take a page from a 1950s maneuver called Operation Twist, which was aimed at decreasing long-term rates relative to short-term rates. Kellner believes flattening the high yield curve could entice banks to start lending again, instead of parking excess cash with the Fed.

    Yeah,and I think we should all be good people and get on with the real solution. Eat some pain you girlie men!

     

    Look this is a distraction, that's what the market action of the past 2 weeks is telling,NO SCREAMING at you!
    Deleveraging takes time. Lots of time. How about we tell the fed to take a holiday, the Europeans don't seem to mind holiday even when the Euro Zone is on the brink.

     

    The fed is impotent and without respect. The policies of this progressive/socialist administration,Bernanke and Geithner are most certainly part of said administration, are the disease.

     

    May God watch over this wonderful little experiment in freedom we call America
