  • Why The Fed Won't Save You From The Next Bear Market [View article]
    You are making the logical leap that allowing the very wealthy and connected to siphon money out of the economy through the Federal Reserve has somehow prevented a 1930's style depression. You have zero evidence or logic to back this claim.

    This claim is merely asserted as justification. This is asinine.

    If you don't think the wealthy lost a ton of money in the 1929 depression, you don't know what the hell you are talking about. Of course, some made out but most didn't, rich or poor.

    Your whole point is historically asinine.

    And today it is clearly your so called "everyman" that is getting fleeced.

    History suggests that the deflationary ("cleansing," what a nice, clean, misleading word) approach carries much more pain for society, overall, because it is truly the wealthy, those with cash, who benefit when money becomes more valuable than anything else and assets are cheap, and it's debtors (the average folks)

    >>>>>&g...

    Wrong, it is the wealthy that own the assets. And easy debt means higher prices and forcing the average folks into deeper debt is not helping them.

    It is the connected guys that can get the real cheap money that are really making out. This is why we see the very wealthy doing very well.

    The truth is the Fed incentivizes and rewards the most parasitic, least productive sector of the economy and forcibly transfers the interest that was once earned by the productive middle class to the parasites. Though the multitudes of apologists, lackeys, toadies, minions and factotums of the Fed will frantically deny it, the inescapable truth is that the nation and the bottom 99.5% would be instantly and forever better off were the Fed closed down and its assets liquidated.

    ... ... ...

  • Why Does Ackman Think Fannie Mae Is A Ten Bagger? [View article]
    As long as the shareholders are not allowed to game the government and get dividends or any benefit, taxpayers should not care what happens to the share price.

    It is first a personal thing because the Federal Reserve is stealing from me and giving to others.

    I don't care to give personal details but most of us unconnected ones are being fleeced, some more than others.

    How is a small time saver able to determine the health of a bank? This is not so easy.

    Well said,

    It is really hard to know how to deal with what is coming. Even with a perfect understanding of the economy, it is impossible to anticipate whatever chaos the Federal Reserve and the politicians will throw at the system.

    Gold and silver were basically no brainers in the early 2000s. I would guess that one still cannot go wrong buying the PMs. Other investments are much more difficult.

    locutus,

    I have a deep yearning for the FED to quit meddling and stop its radical QE and ZIRP policies.

    I respectfully disagree. I am retired and my dividend stock portfolio survived the crash, and my income (from dividends) remain roughly intact. The crash also gave me the rare opportunity to buy great dividend payers at a bargain price. If you have the right kind of portfolio, you will do well in all markets.

    >>>>>&g...

    I see this kind of faith in strong dividend stocks all over SA. I would expect these so called dividend all star stocks to take a beating in the future as there is too much optimism regarding these guys.

    We get some rising interest rates and the dividends will not look so great anymore.

  • Excess Reserves: The Elephant In The Room The Fed Doesn't Want To Talk About [View article]
    Tack,

    You have that backwards. When we have inflation interest rates rise. This must be to compensate bond holders for the loss of the value of the principal.

    No Lawrence,

    All we need is the bond market going into a free fall and folks wanting out. This would send the dollar crashing and the prices of everything skyrocketing.

    These claims that inflation can't happen are exactly similar to the same claims that the housing market can't crash. These claims are fatuous.

    I have seen all these arguments before.

    And in history, there have been countless examples of sick economies with plenty of slack and hyperinflation.

    Tack,

    This is complete nonsense. We have a Federal Reserve taking extraordinary measure to devalue the dollar.

    And then you ask why worry about inflation?

    Benni,

    Once you make the claim that banks do not care about inflation, you have lost all credibility.
