Update #1: QE2 announcement

So the US Federal Reserve has come out and said that QE2 will be $600 Billion at basically $100 Billion a month.

The best comments (and I shudder here) came from Jim Cramer on CNBC...

  • "What we heard from Ben Bernanke today is he is going to adopt a Malcolm X strategy. He is going to get things to go right by any means necessary. And those who want to fight that, be my guest... you are fighting a man who will get the job done by any means possible."

The whole conversation with Cramer came down to this fact: the Federal Reserve has made it their mandate to interfere with the stock market and get stock prices to go up by directly printing money and investing in the market.

I am firmly in the camp that believes this will not rescue the economy. I completely agree with Cramer that Bernanke will try and get things done by "any means possible".

That means QE3, 4 and 5.

More on this to come.

  1. Bernanke is like the "Terminator": he will never stop until the objective is realized.
