You don’t have to be in DC to figure this out. The dynamic is plain as daylight, evidence anyplace you care to look.

What the administration is doing with [Column #1] money, lots and lots of it, makes people sick [Column #2] beyond any commercial insurance coverage. The U.S. economy is a doomed-to-fail [Column #3] war economy replete with greasy pork set aside for the shadiest of TBTF suppliers and smug white-collar crooks; all of the above hyperstimulated by a spectre of [4th Column] terror which is actually caused by [Column #5] who-the-hell-knows, because all that’s kept secret so that people don’t fly completely off the handle into organized rebellion after initial panic.

This list of things people (if the poll’s accurate) want journalists to do better mirrors the list of things people wish for the U.S.administration to improve on. All that’s actually missing now would be a fine-print rider to the effect that such expectations are unlikely to be realized.

There. A trip to DC saved is a trip to DC earned.

It is obviously a sick society, judging by the bar graphs.
Take Davos: …”government debt as a share of economic output in all advanced nations will soar as a result of the crisis, from 78 percent of GDP in 2007 to a whopping 118 percent in 2014.” Isn’t that a classic debt trap ? Blame Geitner, who is merely a new Super-Trader in Treasury, or even Bennie ? Not fair. The Woody Allen look-alike and Bush-fires caused this.
Elsewhere there is talk of build-a-nation-bonds – what bigger catastrophe can you imagine – Asset bubbles from government bonds – The US should sell of assets, not create more false assets with the credit contra to MORE liabilities.
At Davos an article talks of Stagnation. Is that stagflation and what happens to the Fisher effect and real rates ?
More at Davos – Carry trades on low US rates – does anyone understand interest rate parity ?
Central banks/Treasuries and the financial food chain right through to middle class mortgage holders– are these not simply cross holdings that equate to zero upon consolidation ?
You are right, the economic and finance insight and emphasis is shocking.
