  • It's Time To Get Mad [View article]
    I would say that you underestimate the fed, and that they have the capability to create societal trends now. They BOUGHT the bond market. they CONTROL interest rates. They RIGGED the stock market to make sure the wealth effect keeps things going in place of an economy.

    Not too shabby.

    Skynet is complete. Central planning has the markets all squared away. The middle class can feel free to go drop dead now.

    The dream of capitalism that always turns into crony capitalism is gone. It's time that the masses wake up and realize the fed can create money, and demand their share. That's the next step, unless everyone is happy with feudalism 2.0

    the billions in fines are simply the way the banks hand the gubbamint their slice of the pie. "It's a big club, and you ain't in it!"

    The fed has accomplished the monumental task of effectively taking ownership of the bond market, and can thereby dictate interest rates from here on out. Ultimately if they can combine that with using a combination of handouts and taxation to heat up/cool down money velocity, anyone with half a brain just has to stand back in awe of what they accomplished.

    He comes directly from the marketing department of the office of central planning.

    Except they hold themselves out as a fringe blog. Meanwhile they have been forced to spew the same MSM meme's day after day now and shoot for the Alex Jones crowd since they lost anyone with any critical thinking skills of market capabilities long ago.

    Jason what is interesting to me is that somehow you seem to think you are a capitalist and yet you are hands down the biggest fanboy of central planning on this site, and maybe in existence.

    The thing is, I am fine with central planners. What you seem to miss is that they desperately want to move on to the next level where they actually give handouts to the masses. They control the money and inflation spigots and the only fly in the ointment for them is combatting the massive deflationary waves caused by automation. The best way to do that is to just step in themselves and bridge that gap. They can't do that though until the idiot public demands it. Clearly we are not there yet. Apparently we have to start with this ridiculous $15 minimum wage. Maybe that will actually work to get enough people fired so we can finally move on to the next step. If we get there then I will concede that creating money is similar to creating corn or cars. Until then your analogy falls short and your ideology is confused.

    What's funny about ZH is not only are they always wrong, but they model themselves after fight club, yet they throw off every commenter who disagrees with the garbage narrative.

    The bankers long for the populists to hang each other, to keep the focus off of them. It's the beauty of it that everyone on here misses. They set up a system and tell everyone to choose every few years from a bunch of politicians that are all bought and paid for by money the banks created and kept. Then the masses fight each other for the scraps. That's how the system has run since the fed was created.

    "The banking giant Citigroup announced on Friday that it would move its headquarters from New York to the U.S. Capitol Building, in Washington, D.C., in early 2015.

    Explaining the rationale behind the move, Klugian told reporters, “Instead of constantly flying out from New York to give members of Congress their marching orders, Citigroup executives can be right on the floor with them, handing them legislation and telling them how to vote. This is going to result in tremendous cost savings going forward.”

    The fed can raise rates because they own the long end of the curve and know there is an implicit cap, which they control.

    when you say they are a huge bond investor I presume you mean that they own almost all of the long dated treasuries. Meaning they completely capped interest rates. Pretty smart move on their part.
