    'If there was any debate whether the Fed's policies have helped the economy or just the market (and specifically the Bernanke-targeted Russell 2000), the following two charts will end any and all debate. As the following chart from the St Louis Fed shows, as of the just completed quarter, US GDP "growth" since the "recovery" is now the worst in US history, having just dipped below the heretofore lowest on record.'

    Recovery? What recovery? We have deliberately understated our true unemployment and inflation rates, and papered them over with artificially low interest rates. We can't borrow our way into real prosperity.

    Don't need a chart to show how bad its been. Its funny though how the massive profits of wallstreet were demonized under Bush and now the profits are proof Obama is doing the right thing.

    This has been tracking along as the Worst Recovery in the post WW2 era for a couple of years now.

    The bottom has now officially fallen out of the Obama economy, and all the media and focus will of course be on ...... other things.

    .

    And the American people still voted Obama back in, they still gave the Dems Senate seats, and they still gave the Dems House seats. Wow, go figure. Perhaps they just weren't convinced that the Republicans can be trusted in their current incarnation, maybe?

    Perhaps they also know what most of the rest of us know, that this wasn't just another recession.
