Comments on: Bernanke’s deficit warning helps Obama http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/06/04/bernankes-deficit-warning-helps-obama/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: ELK_HUN10 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/06/04/bernankes-deficit-warning-helps-obama/#comment-16232 Sat, 06 Jun 2009 18:33:02 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=3817#comment-16232 Economics and politics go together like love and divorce. What is good economics is often bad politics. The reverse is just as often as true. To advance your own political flavor by making fun of any ideas that do not tow the line of your own economic and political ambitions is a trait of most politicians, not economists. It is not hard to guess the political persuasion of this articles writer. May their opinion be blended with other voices of dissent and the resultant noise relegated to the appropriate dispersal of inane commentary. What this country needs is a good listener with the experience and knowledge to choose which options will lead us out of this mess. We already have enough nay sayers, they do not need any help wanted signs, or maybe they do.

No one knows how much money the fed has pumped in to corporations and financial institutions. They currently hold 4 trillion plus dollars in treasuries. The fed is accountable to no one. All of this is precisely why 150 plus members of Congress are sponsoring legislation to require an audit of the Federal Reserve Board.

Remember, the Federal Reserve Board is the managing authority for our nations wealthiest bankers. They charge us interest to use the money they hold, even if they print it.
