There is no possible way that the Fed is going to taper, and I find it to be completely irresponsible that the current “media blitz” in the U.S media is speaking of it – as if it’s practically a given!
This is absolutely outrageous!
A bunch of floating heads reading a teleprompter, speaking as if they’ve some “authority” on the subject, rambling on and on and on,as to how the Fed’s “taper” is not “tightening”.
And you’re buying this bullshit?! Do you even understand the difference? Is there a difference?
It’s like this…..I can find a million different angles to illustrate the point, but in sticking with the “Japan is doomed theme” lets simply consider this.If the U.S Federal Reserve was to actually “taper” we all know the inverse / correlating effect it will have on interest rates. THERE IS NO WAY THE FED TAPERS WITHOUT INTEREST RATES RISING. PERIOD.
Interest rates rising in the U.S will put immediate ( and I mean “immmmmmediate” ) pressure on interest rates around the globe.
Boom!….Japan’s interest rate on outstanding debt rises to only 2% and BAM!
Full scale economic collapse / disaster / as the interest owed would exceed 80% of the government revenue, setting of a string of “economic events” tumbling domino after domino in this now “very global economy” we live in.
There is not a single chance in hell! The Fed is going to risk “global economic meltdown” by way of tapering, and “forcing rates higher” at a time when the entire planet is hanging by a thread.
This thing is so interconnected now that as we’ve discussed in the past – The U.S Fed has painted itself so far into the corner, that the only way to keep the dream alive will be to “increase QE”.
I honestly don’t know how the entire staff of CNBC as well CNN go home every night to their families etc – and are able to look themselves in the mirror with any shred of dignity, moral code or sense of decency.
