Before they go bankrupt they’ll print money. They’ll print endless money. As long as we have Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellin at the Fed they’ll print money and so they can postpone the end game endlessly…Endlessly not, but say for another five to ten years. Each money printing exercise brings about unintended consequences. These unintended consequences are partly higher inflation rates than had no money been printed.
