This one is a narrower timeframe for comparison, which shows the most recent trend of coming back down to Earth... or at least the moon.



What do you think of Bernanke having asked for more power for the Fed? I haven't been following it since he first asked for it. When was that? A couple weeks ago?

He will get it if he wants it, no timeline before than because the creation of the Fed was 1913. Before all of our debts were just left over from the civil and revolutionary wars, which we still havent paid off.

The chart is ridiculous, the fed owns us, and they arent going to change that. Especially fucking obama who thinks hes the god damn messiah

That last graph doesn't really show it as well as the data itself. It is still getting worse through June. July numbers aren't there yet.

Can you explain the numbers then? Why would stlouisfed.org post trash information? How do you interpret the numbers? Are they fake?

Those low interest rates the Fed put in place following 9/11 was enough to drive lending and borrowing to crazy dimensions. It wasn't unlike the bubble of the stock market and the internet bubble of the late 90s. It had to crash back to reality. Then there is the fraudulent lending practices.

Now that we are in this mess which was perhaps created out of a combination of circumstance, greed, and stupidity, the Fed thinks it should take on an even larger role. Could the Fed be part of the problem? Or is it the only shining beacon of light and hope?
