QE3, 8.1% Unemployment, $16 Trillion in Debt: What the Heck is Going On?

It’s official. The Federal Reserve is officially out of its collective mind.

By announcing yet another round of Quantitative Easing by buying $40 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities, Ben Bernanke is completely out of control. ben_bernanke_food_storage

Here is a reminder for everyone: QE1 cost $1.7 trillion, QE2 cost $.5 trillion, and now QE3 has an open-ended price tag. That’s right, I said open ended. In a bizarre move, the Fed did not put a price tag or a timeline on this new round of spending.

Does anyone know what this is doing to America’s debt burden? Does anyone care anymore?

To me, this is a classic case of government thinking it has all the answers to life’s problems. Got high unemployment? Let’s go into debt to try and stimulate the economy.

How about this for a change? Stop spending so much money on frivolous, wasteful projects and entitlements and start reducing the tax and regulatory burdens placed on companies and citizens?

Wow, it’s just mind-boggling to me how ridiculous the leaders of this country have become. In an era of government knows best, the real joke is on “we the people” who have allowed our government to get away with these shenanigans.

What does this mean for you? A weaker dollar, higher prices, and some short-term gains in the stock market.

Thanks Ben.

    This is OVERT WAR on the us dollar!
    There is no denying that the average American Joe is not the subject of economic help but will be caught up in the colateral damage to the dollor! The economy will be saved but 99% of American’s will be dirt poor and starving! We will see 10% inflation by November of this year!
