That's a pretty lot of talk about how "X" thousands per person, blah blah, handed over, yak yak. But the easing is to make it easier on banks and companies, giving them cheaper money so THEY can go out and create jobs. Right?

Giving money to business is Red, White & Blue patriotic. Giving it to individuals is throwing it away on worthless losers.

I like how $100 million is "plenty to go around for everyone", rather than "about 30 cents for each American".
 
2012-10-08 08:42:50 AM
hey giving it to individuals is both! I'll buy an iPad or something.. that creates jobs right?

"Demonocracy"? Really?

Maybe they meant "for all the job creators".

Stupid article is stupid.

QE was absolutely the right thing to do because that's the quickest most effective way to halt deflation, which we experienced in early 2009. Also, in an economy where overleveraging has caused a credit crisis, the thing to do is print money to make deleveraging easier. It has the drawback of letting people who overleveraged themselves off the hook easier than otherwise, but that's better than the negative feedback of deflation.

Inflation is great if your wages increase accordingly. But that seldom happens. That's why I am a big fan of deflation.

That's a lot of strawman and false dichotomy for one post. Listen, us capitalists have always been against this kind of "socialism" for business (crony capitalism is the more accurate term), since it's quite obviously a breach of free market principles, but do we ever get any credit for that? Nooooo, we get smeared as anarchists and Armageddon fetishists and baby eaters by leftists.

we elect them with smiles and jubilation. we also cast aside those who want to make real change to the system.

Kinda weird how the same people doing this and courting out-of-control inflation are the same ones supported by the OWS protesters.

Citations demanded for "courting out-of-control inflation." Also, you should go look up the inflation numbers of today vs. the inflation numbers during the era of Saint Reagan.

I said "courting", as in we're dangerously close to it happing if this spending continues. Inflation during what you term "Saint Reagan" was very low for much of administration, after the Carter policies were corrected. They started to go up again when spending couldn't be controlled in 1987.


Don't be an asshole and assume I think every policy the Republicans float out there is perfectly sane. Overspending is supposed to be a short-term plan in a pinch, similar to your personal credit card. Every politicians has a responsibility to pay the bills.

/And yes, wars should be paid for with war taxes--W wasn't a saint, either, so don't bother bringing it up.

BS

How many purchases in your life would you have not made if you knew it could be 2% cheaper next year?

People do this with electronics every day. They all know they can get the same computer in 1 year for half the price, yet people still buy computers, or iphones, or TVs.



This spiral of deflation nonsense is not grounded in reality.

If you think inflation is going to go up, take out all the loans you can and buy property. We're not making more of that, and 30y fixed rates are

USD M3 has increased only 12% in the past 5 years.

But hey, don't let actual data get in the way of your awesome infographic.

Really? Did you know M3 excludes Market Capital?

Since you have the numbers handy, what was the MZM?

When they print up money they do nothing to increase our pile of stuff, they just shift the property line and steal the wealth from the people that do know what they are were doing.

I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
A bubble for a minute
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it
Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

How dare you bring economics into a discussion of economics. Don't you know the real answer is gold?

Ask Sony and the BD association how thats going. #1 reason, "they'll be cheaper eventually". OR HDTV adoption. Or game consoles.

Better yet, ask the guy who plans to build a 38 story tower in big city of state whatever. Or CEO of big fhuking company Z who can do his capital upgrades in 2 years for 10% less.

There's a real danger there.

Yes, really.

MZM has increased 44% in the same time frame.
And ? So ?

USD M3 is the best measure of our money supply, not MZM.

Dear GOP dipshiats. You don't seem to realize that half the problem is perception and confidence. To get people to spend and hire they cannot also be afraid. For example, you know that warm, pleasant feeling you get after you kick an old homeless person in the ribs? Kinda like that but it makes you want to go buy a house.

It's not a troll if it's true, but thanks for playing, I've enjoyed holding your not-annoyed attention.
