    That is very good.
    And this should be on national TV running in a loop for 24 hours.

    Maybe then people here, and everywhere, will stop simply playing red vs. blue all day - and instead pay attention to what is really happening.

    GOOD stuff and I agree it should run for 24 hours on all news networks. Sans a couple of questionable words.

    Excellent!

    A very concise and accurate explanation of how the decisions of The Ben Bernanke benefit The Goldman Sachs at the expense of The American Taxpayer who are suffering from High Prices during The Deflation.

    This was pretty funny, but a bit misleading.

    I wish it would have gone into a little more detail about how the money is created, and the reason why QE is inflationary as opposed to traditional Fed asset buying.

    How the $600 billion is created? Isn't the Fed just printing that off?

    Is the reason that QE is inflationary important? From the video I got that the Fed is claiming deflation is going on now. Is it? Things I purchase are all up in price . . . how is that deflation? And why would they want things to be more expensive now, when folks are out of work and all?
