Outoa. Onhan tuota todellistakin kritisoitavaa, kuten Romerin kuoliaaksi vaiettu makrokritiikki hyvin osoitti.

One has to read a wide variety of sources nowadays (with filters on naturally). Their repo-coverage had probably been the best. I think that the original article, presenting this graph, was in Econ Prism.

A rather astonishing chart.👇 So, officials, and their minions, would like us to believe that the Fed's recent repo-operations, double the size during GFC, are due to "technical" and/or reserve issues. Right. Via

Horrible idea/theory. European democracy desperately needs Brexit to succeed.

Excellent summarization of research by Goldman, BoA, et al. The bottom line: risk assets are soaring due to the QE and the Not-QE, nothing else. are utterly destroying the price discovery in the asset markets. They need to go.

Well, it always has been, at least since the days of the Roman Empire. It's just extremely difficult to know who or what is trying to accomplish what and when. Thus, I think it's more productive to concentrate on those, who are actually making the decisions.

It will probably just grow. People are sick and tired of its continuous meddling. I guess that's how the downfall of centralized systems start, nowadays. If there would've been a Twitter, I can easily imagine something similar happening in our eastern neighbor in 1989... 😉

I have not enough information to comment such claims. Yet, politicians and authorities are the ones making decisions, and should 'face the music' whenever needed.

A succesful family, which are probably very well connected politically. Always demand those making the decisions, not some possible background sources, accountable.
