    Egan-Jones downgrades U.S. rating on QE3 move - MarketWatch

    SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Egan-Jones Ratings Co. said Friday it downgraded its U.S. sovereign rating to AA- from AA on concerns that the Fed's new round of quantitative easing, or QE3, will hurt the U.S. economy. The ratings agency said the Fed's plan of buying $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities a month and keeping interest rates near zero does little to raise GDP, reduces the value of the dollar, and raises the price of commodities.

    Just this morning Bernake's act of making our money even more worthless than it already is was hailed as genius.

    trade imbalance, lower dollar equals more exports.
