Gentlemen, Start Your Printing Presses!

“Whoops!…Oh dear!…It looks like Ben fell off the wagon again!

Such a shame. He had been doing so well ever since he put that bottle of “Old Q.E.” back on the shelf last June… and got sober. But a few weeks back, he tripped up on his 12-step program and started nipping at the bottle again. Slowly at first… then to excess.

Yes, it’s true, dear reader, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, is printing money again. That’s bad enough. But this time, after he prints it, he sends it over to Europe. Crazy, but true. The chart below tells the tale. It shows the quantity of currency swaps on the Fed’s balance sheet.”
