Markets Will Implode On Full Taper
December 19th, 2013
After five years of (empty) promises; this is it? Today, to the thunderous applause of the Corporate Media, the Federal Reserve announced what is being called “modest tapering”. However, to appreciate how truly trivial and token was the “tapering” announced today requires first stepping back, and recalling what Big-Talk Bernanke was saying five years ago:
…he promised to quickly unwind massive Fed lending programs when the economy improves, so they don’t stoke inflation.
However, after five years of a (supposed) U.S. economic recovery, instead of “quickly unwinding” this reckless money-printing (and 0% interest rate) with the Exit Strategy that Bernanke promised the world again and again; he has tripled his money-printing.
