    The Fed is going to buy ETFs. What does it mean?

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/th...article_inline

    The central bank is acting as a buyer of last resort and propping up the bond market in the most efficient manner possible.

    “How we got here is ten years of successive liquidity pumped into the market, forcing money into risk assets, building up the economy through financial asset inflation because the real side of the economy didn’t come along to the same extent. The Fed created this monster so it has to be on the other side of it now.”

    We are issuing a shit pot of new debt and trying to hold interest rates down and control inflation at the same time.

    It's a tough tango.

    Basically, we are promising low rates and liquidity during a 2nd Great Depression (don't kid ourselves, that is what we are in) backed by the authority of the Federal Government to tax the fuck out of its citizens in the future.

    too many people don't seem to understand that this will be a long term problem. This isn't a couple of quarters. There will be years of recovery ahead.

    The lesson learned from the first GD was to keep cash circulating. Restricting cash simply causes a modern economy to halt.

    However, in my mind, Congress and the POTUS is issuing this new debt with absolutely NO CONSIDERATION of how we are ever going to pay for it.

    I think all fiscal minded citizens/taxpayers agree with you DD. At some point if this virus keeps choking the economy the factors you talked about will emerge. Food prices are now at a 40 year high but I think the over all cpi was down big last month? I guess that is to be expected at first with a shutdown? But longterm if this continues and most think it will inflation is going to be the problem and raising funds rates will not be an option because that blows out equity markets, and then theres the 25 trillion debt load and counting. It all depends on length of the crisis. Call me a cynic but I think we where already fucked before the virus going back to the 2008 recession/ mini depression. Most of this stuff is beyond my pay grade but as Luke Skywalker says.....I have a bad feeling about this.

    We started fucking ourselves with doing decade plus two theater wars for trillions of dollars that really didn't accomplish that much.

    We are going to be like other great Empires, death by a thousand cuts. We won't be able to point to just one thing.

    I think we should just annex Canada and take their natural resources.

    We don't need to, I know Canadians won't like to hear this, but they are pretty damn dependent upon the US, hell, most of their citizens live within ten miles of the US. It's pretty much America anyway. If the shit ever hit the fan, we know whose side Canada would be on, no need to fight them to make it compulsory.
