  • Why QE Has Not Been Stimulative [View article]
    fair enough. So what do we take in in tax revenue right now? 2.something trillion?

    if we are spending 20-30% of our revenue to pay just the interest on the debt, while still running deficits, whatever number you want to use....that does not bode well. At all.

    If you took the debt today and put rates at that 5.25% level, what would the interest expense be on the debt?

    He is definitely going to start tapering soon. He has made it clear that in his mind "tapering is not tightening"

    "Did you know that U.S. banks have more than 1.8 trillion dollars parked at the Federal Reserve and that the Fed is actually paying them not to lend that money to us? We were always told that the goal of quantitative easing was to "help the economy", but the truth is that the vast majority of the money that the Fed has created through quantitative easing has not even gotten into the system. Instead, most of it is sitting at the Fed slowly earning interest for the bankers."

    The preferred method would have been to let the banks fail. Make the depositors whole, reinstate Glass Steagall, and get the banks out of the investmenet business.

    Instead, we went this route, and are going to end up in the same place call over again. But at least Bankers continued to get their bonuses all along.

    Lame

    The point of QE was to recapitalize the banks, at the expense of everyone else.

    You want stimulus? Send everyone a check. You will get the inflation you desire. Instead we just hand the banks blank checks. They buy up all the real assets with free money and we eat chained cpi cat food and tell each other there is no inflation.

    Hebba, appreciate the insight. My only question is, how is this scenario bullish for the ETF (GLD). If there is any truth to this, I would think the etf would end up getting dumped as people say "give me the cash, I am going to get the real thing".

    You guys are hysterical.

    What are you going to say when the Bernak has to double down on QE just to keep rates where they are?

    How about when he does that and they still creep higher.
