Borrow and print

Short term noise often tends to obscure the longer term realities and the fact is that the US is now firmly on the path to financial decline unless an abrupt, about face occurs in regards to our economic and fiscal policies. I have said it before and will say it again; if all that was necessary to produce lasting prosperity was to ramp up the printing presses and borrow like a banshee, nations of the past would have figured it out long before we did and would have successfully implemented it. That those nations that have attempted to do so are now in the ashbin of history or learned enough to avoid doing so again, is proof enough that it is a foolish, irresponsible and destructive path to take.
