[quote:GodFrequency:MV8yMDY2OTI4XzM0NzgxMDg4XzlBQzY3M0U2] The scarier version of this number is that: The Fed is the largest buyer of treasuries. This is the number we get while printing money and running deficits. This is a number created by a rigged stock market consisting of high frequency trading, buying our own treasuries, buying our own mortgage backed securities, and Quantitative easing to infinity. Between the years of 2008 and 2010 the Federal Reserve lent spent or borrowed 16 trillion dollars, and still the decline. This number is with the United States having trillions and trillions of derivatives! More than the worlds GDP This number is with a country that use to have the worlds reserve currency! This number is with the big banks paying nothing in taxes, and all the corporations exempt from Obamacare. This number would be negative if the real economic horror were to be seen. This is the number where we were all supposedly going to be saved by keeping General Motors, and all the Big banks by bailing them all out! Do you presume to question the great and powerful Federal Reserve? [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWyCCJ6B2WE[/youtube] [/quote]
Creating the illusion of economic growth is easy if you can print money. It’s a prank you can play on an entire country. Cut the value of the currency in half and the economy’s size will appear to double.
The only way to accurately measure changes in a nation’s economy is to do so relative to the world (see Notes for non-nerds below before protesting). According to the World Bank, the U.S. represented 31.8% of the world’s economic activity in 2001. By the end of 2011, that share had dropped to 21.6%, meaning America’s slice of the world economy is 32% smaller than it was a decade ago, and getting smaller every day. Note that America’s housing bubble did nothing to boost the U.S. on the global stage.
