So when everyone's retirement is dependent on bailouts, and the entire economy is dependent on the health of Wall St (or at least until they can get back to reality), then what do the bailouts mean?

This speaker states that the amount of bailouts has been over 700billion.

The growth of the US economy that same time- 350billion.

And entire nation funded, dependent and oblivious to bank theft.

Its always been there, but they arent even trying to hide it anymore.

If you have been keeping up on QE over the last few years, this thread and the links on it are incredible important even if they do not have a lot of actual numbers data. A small breakdown for those who find economics too dry to engage.

  1. The lowering of the deficit and debt mean less available treasuries for the Federal Reserve to buy, the projected value of which has been used to purchase the remaining toxic assets from the banks. IE, less ability for the Fed to continue absorbing the toxicity on WallSt.

  2. The Federal Reserve and politicians fear that a quick end to QE could destabilize WallSt and cause a market collapse. The lowered purchasing power of the Fed may cause this to actually play out.

  3. The G20 is becoming concerned over the corner the Fed has backed itself into and will be calling on the US at the next G20 meeting to reassure the G20 that things are under control.

  4. The printed money that is floating around WallSt is not highly inflationary as it is wrapped up in WallSt and not spreading around main street. This could become a runaway inflation issue if investors cash out in a panic to avoid the QE calamity.

Any economists on the forum can jump in if they fell my summary is incorrect.
