What Happens When Currencies Go Bust?
The Mogambo Guru
Wednesday, 8 December 2010
I was telling the doctor that I distinctly heard a popping sound inside my head when I saw that the foul Federal Reserve had created, last week alone, another $24.2 billion in Fed Credit, which was instantly turned into money when the Fed bought $24.2 billion of US government securities, and all in One Freaking Week (OFW)! It made a kind of “sizzling” sound.
Furthermore, a tortured howl of outrage boils up inside me (which tastes surprisingly like stale beer and pepperoni pizza) at the Sheer Inflationary Horror (SIH) of this creation of $24.2 billion in new money in One Freaking Week (OFW)!!
The doctor dismissed my complaint, but billed me anyway, although you can obviously see the seriousness of it by the use of two exclamation points, and by the use of another one at the end of this sentence used to explain the significance of the prior exclamation points! It’s self-proving! Proving!
Perhaps you are saying to yourself, “This seems to be important, as indicated by the sudden plethora of exclamation points, but for reasons which are not clear. Why am I wasting my time with this Stupid Mogambo Crap (SMC) anyway?”
