    Seems like a big problem. We have gone past Oct 10. I hope you guys do some robust reporting on this. We need to hear the truth for a change.

    The FED did this on purpose. The REPO mess is their doing. They are a drug addict once again demanding their drugs. End them. End is enough. They will destroy the world.

    The Federal Reserve has destroyed the Free Market economy with eight years of Quantitative Easing and low interest rate manipulation. FED policy has caused massive asset inflation which causes higher mortgage, rent, gas, food, etc., charges so there is simply no money left to keep these stores in business. The Banks have won and the American people have lost just as Thomas Jefferson predicted.

    One word, FED is terrorist and criminal.
    FED created this rigged game and Bernanke is one of the biggest criminal. Don't forget FED killed JFK
    So many idiots and nonsense guys like you.
    Recession is a part of the economy. Just like you sleep, take rest, kool down, get energized for next leg up.
    FED killed JFK, FED is absolutely a criminal entity, a Rothschild game. To make rich, richer. Keep slavery (modern style) alive.
    Wanna save economy in long run, hike interest rates. Common sense says high interest rates in real good economy. After a dacade, over $20 Trillions printed, unemployment rate all time low, still cutting interest rates??? Wow
    It's called Fony pumped in economy to save Rich and Banks and now Trump.
    Fed created this rigged game and Bernanke is one of the biggest criminal.
    It's very simple, not mind boggling, even a caveman knows that. It's called printing $Trillions and buying your own debt. This is the biggest criminal and ponzi scheme ever in US history.
    End the FED or face the coming consequences

    There’s a reason why the American Founding Fathers hated central banks. There’s a reason why the constitution states only PMs are to be used as money. Americans got lazy, and brainwashed. We should have listened to the wise men of yesteryears. History repeats itself because Human Nature is predictable. It’s game over. Let the empire fall, as all empires have failed in the past. Then we can restart, as many civilizations have done.

  • Harry Chu
    Harry Chu Month ago +2

    Are they suggesting that the solution is for the Fed to increase their balance sheet by buying up Treasury Bonds and therefore creating artificial demand for US Debt? Thus increasing the perceived value of Treasuries which should lowing collateralize loans using Treasury bonds (e.g., Repo loans)?

    It sounds like we need to deal with our national debt rather than use these band-aids.

      Which voters voted for Greenspan? Who voted for Bernanke? What percent of the vote did Yellen get? How about Powell?
      Zero. None. They are unelected bureaucrats. They control the economy without receiving a single vote.
      And as a consumer I can assure you, the Fed is not helping us by inflating prices beyond our reach, effectively making us poorer each year.

    When I run into liquidity issues I wind up at the Pawn Shop and some idiot calls in 10 experts to argue me down to virtually nothing in my place of desperation, when the big banks run into liquidity issues they get into bed with their Fed Mistress and get a lovely sweetheart deal. We went from too big to fail, to too big to bail so we are going to proactively bastardize every fundamental in a market.
