    "They [the Soviets] intend...to induce the Americans to adopt their own 'restructuring' and convergence of the Soviet and American systems ... Convergence will be accompanied by blood baths and political re-education camps in Western Europe and the United States. The Soviet strategists are counting on an economic depression in the United States and intend to introduce their reformed model of socialism with a human face as an alternative to the American system during the depression."

    Wow... an author that correctly identifies the depressionary deflation occurring now and also correctly identifies the hyperinflation that the "cure" would cause?

    That's unprecedented.

    And wow, did you read any of the comments? Lots of Austrian-types on there...
    If God himself got off his throne, descended from the heavens, trumpetted at my door, and announced that I was wasting my time trying to get Ron Paul into the Whitehouse, I would thank him for his concern and ask him to leave me to my business. I've wasted lots of time on far less noble causes. ~RockEnds

    I remember when I was a kid and we used to blow bubbles, we would see who could blow the biggest and then the best part was seeing it POP.

    The bank is already targeting equities on the Tokyo bourse. That is not enough for restive politicians. One bloc led by Senator Koutaro Tamura wants to create $330bn in scrip currency for an industrial blitz. "We are facing hyper-deflation, so we need a policy to create hyper-inflation," he said.
    What?

    And the people closest to the bubble got soap in their eyes.

    Looks like even the feds are backing out of that one....


    Feb. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Federal Reserve officials have failed to resolve an internal debate over whether to purchase long-term Treasuries, even as rising yields on the securities threaten to undermine the central bank’s objective of cutting borrowing costs for consumers and businesses.

    Policy makers are instead focusing on a program to purchase $200 billion in consumer and small-business loans and on a plan to buy $600 billion in home-finance debt, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

    Forgoing purchases of Treasuries may exacerbate a jump in borrowing costs for the government as federal debt managers seek to finance an unprecedented budget deficit. Benchmark 10-year note yields this week exceeded their level of Dec. 1, when Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke first talked about the option. That’s raised other borrowing costs, potentially delaying a recovery.

    “The Fed will get a lot more bang for its buck by buying mortgages than buying Treasuries,” said John Ryding, founder and chief economist of RDQ Economics LLC in New York and a former Fed economist. “We were kind of a little surprised when the Fed wanted to go down this route” in comments starting in December, Ryding said.
