Inflation Will Hit America With A Vengeance

The Fed is trying another round of QE, even though the first installment of $1.7 trillion did not work to actually repair the economy. We spent another $2 trillion in TARP and other stimulus that was, also, supposed to fix the economy. It’s a grand total of $3.7 trillion just in the last two years. (Some say it’s more than $12 trillion spent or committed.) All this money printing did inflate stock prices. It also helped out the big banks. It worked so well they are paying a record $144 billion in bonuses this year. What did the man on the street get?–foreclosure fraud and higher unemployment (22.5% according to Shadowstats.com). Now, the money is running out, and the Fed is back to printing to keep the economy from falling off a cliff–again. Nothing has been fixed; the day of reckoning has just been postponed, but this cannot go on forever. At some point, the U.S. dollar will take a severe plunge, and inflation will hit America with a vengeance.

Insanity or Ingenious?
