    Fed makes aggressive move to juice U.S. economy

    "The Federal Reserve said Thursday that it will deploy a third, multi-billion-dollar bond-buying program, and pledged to keep its benchmark interest rate near zero until at least mid-2015, extending its previous guidance by half a year.

    In a statement, the Fed’s policy committee said new monetary stimulus is necessary because the economy isn’t growing fast enough to lower the unemployment rate. Both measures announced Thursday should put downward pressure on interest rates. The hope is that will be enough to coax businesses and households to spend and invest, generating demand that could lead to new jobs."

    So long as there is paper and ink he will not be out of bullets. The motherfuckers intend to hyperinflate the currency.


    "Unlike its previous use of QE, the Fed on Thursday refrained from setting a limit on how much it would spend."

    Buying a few billion in MBS's is going to buy the election for Obama? If the wanted to buy the election don't ya think they'd spread the purchases a bit more broadly?

    Maybe he did it to protect the Republican Party. There will most likely be an economic meltdown during the next term regardless of who is president. If this move helps Obama get re-elected, the Republicans will have a lock on the 2016 election if they choose a good candidate..

    Gee, who benefits from the highly inflationary policy?

    Who has the means, motive, and opportunity ?

    The Fed Board should be incarcerated for this theft of our money. How dare they make our money worth less.

    Prices are going to skyrocket in the next few months.

    Usually Republicans try to hide the fact that they are rooting for a bad economy. You don't think the UE rate is too high? You don't think the Fed should be concerned about high UE?

    about a trillion or so dollars worth of a recessionary gap with 8% unemployment at the moment, and you're worried about....

    Inflation?
