More quantitative easing

As predicted, and against a backdrop of Fed-speak about "exit strategies" several months ago, the Fed is continuing to implement quantitative easing, i.e., printing money out of thin air. The Fed will do everything in its power to avoid another Greek "austerity" situation, delaying the inevitable currency crisis as long as possible.

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has also declared the US government will never lose its AAA credit rating. Moody's, the credit ratings agency, says the possibility is very real, due to soaring debt levels and deficits. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and former New York Fed Governor Geithner completely missed the housing bubble, financial crisis, and deep recession in their testimonies. Why should any of us believe them now?
