I watched this video of Nathan Fletcher and I begin to think that this is a picture of the US economy. We're about to drop into this extreme ride, yet don't know what the outcome will be. Bernanke thinks to himself, "no matter what, I've got to get to the shoulder...."print, print, and buy MBS....or I'll hit the reef and die.
The ride has begun, who knows what will be the outcome.
Enjoy. If I was a younger man and I had to live life over again, perhaps I'd have gone to college in California and done something like this for a living.
