QE1 and QE2 is printing money.....

as opposed to legitimate borrowing money against an asset or the reasonable expectation of  future production to pay the money back. (which by the way is most Fools definition of printing, but since I am a lawyer and probably one of the our nation's foremost experts on the legal and moral nature of money, I must clarify the difference as they are HUGE)

"Printing" via fraudulent lending(no reasonable expectation to pay it back) or outright counterfeiting(QE1 and QE2) is legally wrong and morally reprehensible.  It is essentially stealing the production/life of another who accepts your money...whether by force or unknowingly.

Creating money actually backed by production is the definition of money and creating money through a legitimate loan, although has risks attached, is still within legal bounds.

Every nation for the past 5000 years that has attempted to print money has thrusted its nation into massive convulsions.....when the Roman Empire tried to mix metals with their gold and silver coins, once the people found out, the Empire collapsed. 

The same thing happened to the Spaniards, Germans, and Argentinians and many more......

At some point, people will eventually reject the printed money in exchange for the production/life.....and if you need that production, your only choice left is to use love(the third method to generate production) generally is out the window at that point.

Welcome to Alstrynomics....the analysis of deficit based economies with no reasonable expectation to ever pay it back....otherwise known as Zombulation once most figure it out.

The value of the dollar is based on money supply, economic fundamentals, and supply and demand (bond market). How you came to the conclusion that increasing money supply for stimulus is "counterfitting" and the dollar not being backed by economic fundamentals, is beyond me. Not even mentioning the fact the bond market currently completely disagrees with your view of the dollar. Otherwise, a 10-Year US Treasury Bond should be, according to your dire warnings, be closer to something like a 20% yield, rather than what is now, 3.55%.

Are you even living in this world.  The only entity buying U.S. debt right now on a material net basis is the FED.....and the FED is printing the money out of thin air.

We are printing/counterfeiting OVER $1.6 trillion dollars per year.  No nation or collection of nations could come close to buying that much paper if they actually had to produce to create it.

Interest rates are whatever the FED wants them to be....and if the FED were not buying bonds, then you are right, interest rates would be well NORTH of 20%.

So whats the problem Alstry ???  


Alstry reminds me of someone complaining because some ship managed to hit the ice-burg, rams its way thru undamaged and no one dies.

The ship is sailing away towards the horizon, everyone has boat drinks  and Alstry is pissed,  because  ALstry is a perma bear...


It doesn't matter to him, regardless we could have zero percent unemployment and Alstry would be the same ~~ its bad its bad...

 Anyone see the south park episode about man-bear-pig with Al Gore trying to save the boys from some imaginary creature because Al is so lonely and has no friends.

Alstry = Al Gore on south park...

I'm super serious ??  cereal !

and that doesn't even include the fact that fewer and fewer are actually working even though the unemployment rate is falling....I would have to be delusional or insane to think things are, I really should be more bearish.

It is good to be an optimist in such dire times......

seriously, did you really think you could print your way to prosperity without going to war to defend such behavior?

Look around you, it appears we are well on way now....

It's very hard for people to actually believe the sky is falling until they get hit in the head with it. It really doesn't do much good to warn anyone that the world is ending. You either see it coming or you don't.

Alstry may be p...... into the wind but he's smart enough to wear a raincoat. Not that it will help much if things really do go to hell in a hand basket.

I, for one, have offered many times to pick up my pitch fork and torch and follow if Alstry would just do anything but yell and scream someone should do something...

So, that said I guess I should start "".

I'll have to check out the other site or perhaps I'll just link to it from "".

There is too much food...   Alstry must we mock you and dont you get tired looking the fool ??????

 with zero credibility...... like I said before  you'd be broke following your nonsense and thus as the market recovered you would have nothing....

So all you do is hate, cry, and whine.....  silly boy....

 Look at your score ??? pathetic given your suppose to be the great Alstry with locked in accuracy....  you  haven't had a positive score in what  a long long time probably before I left...

No one will starve and if you do in America you probably aren't valuable enough to deserve eating.

what happened to the zombie of 9.09.09  ?????????? huh

what  happened to a will not post


instead you post like your some kind of crack addict and the better the market gets the  more stupid your posts look.

 and all you can do is say nothing.,

but your dumb bear position which would have not served anyone well.

your morally bankrupt and your bias is amazing.
