    I'm thinking my position to audit the federal reserve is at this point unfavorable. We've passed the point of return on this and the only way people will learn that these policies are economic train wrecks is literally let the bottom drop out. We reap what we sow.

    Except they are not economic train wrecks.

    Austerity doesn't work. It never worked. During times of great economic distress it was government spending that got economies out of it.

    And most of that spending was done on wars.

    We've got to figure out a better way.

    And giving $billions to banks and Wall Street ain't it.
    Which is what this administration is setting up to do for the 3rd time.

    There are absolutely no other alternatives. Republican obstructionism has saw to that. Along with GW Bush lowering interest rates to zero.

    It's either this..or the market tanks.

    Jesus....ok I give up. I don't know why I ever thought you had the sense to be able to see things as they are and not blind to everything you don't agree with.
    Damn.

    Not blind.

    Blindness is watching a record number of filibusters and nonsense bills being pushed through congress and thinking this is BAU.

    That's blind.

    This isn't a partisan issue. The alternative to giving banks massive bailouts and "stimulating" the economy through monetary inflation, using monetized debt no less, is not the only answer to the problem. In fact, the correction is exactly what the market needs. Which means stop running the policies that got us here in the first place. It's the definition of insanity.

    But leave it to the political hacks to muck up an economic discussion with matters that do not have anything to do with it.

    The OP is more or less correct. Whenever central banks have been expanding, stocks have gone up. When they aren't expanding, stocks have gone down.

    That's how it usually goes.
