FED POST by Mark & Stacey

Original post made by m on Oct 1, 2009

The post concerning FED by Mark with comments by Stacey was very, very good. At first it seemed daunting, but when I finally read it, I realized how comprehensive it was. You know, the more I think about it, how our money system works may be more important than the political entanglements we all dwell on. Anyway, I just feel that EVERYONE should read their posts. Enough said!!!

Would the "m" stand for Mark?

Nope ... I am a different person than Mark ... I thought it was good ... it's the true heart of politics.

I'm surprised no one talked about the FED's historic decision last year to buy over a trillion on mortgage backed securities and other "troubled assets" last year to increase the money supply. Normally the FED trade is US treasuries. Something seems really fishy.
