While I'm still a little fuzzy on the actual specifics of this explanation of just what, exactly, the fed's been doing to avert various monetary crises, the conclusion seems to me sound enough. Those who get their economics reports... [Read More]

Thanks for the tip, Steve!

Nonsense. The Fed is injecting Repo money at an enormous rate. We shouldn't have rates fit the domestic economy, but the domestic economy fit worldwide rates unless we want to see the dollar fade as a reserve currency every time we are slower growing (hence lower rates) than the rest of the world.

A coupon pass would make the repo liquidity permanent. See

for the MZM figures.

As far as trading options on AGW, I'll take a pass. Clever idea, though. BTW, I sense a tipping point coming and it isn't in favor of the anti-AGW crowd. :>(

Econbrowser (Hamilton's site) is one I go to every day. He really does take a balanced approach. Unless, of course there is something going on in San Diegeo, where he resides, and then a touch of bias shows up.

Hey! He's human.

Funny. "I sense a tipping point coming and it isn't in favor of" the AGW crowd. I base this on NASA's grudging admission that it has screwed up the US temperature series followed by changing the series it used without telling anyone. That smells like guilt to me.

Also, I would never bet on the temperature change so long as NASA and NOAH continue to 'cook the books' by inadequately adjusting stations for the UHI effect. They don't seem to even follow their own rules about that.

One would think that if the AGW True Believers (Gorebots) they wouldn't have to resort to such activities, wouldn't one.

I've been in and around the building energy business for over 25 years. Reducing energy consumption is a good thing but what I am seeing is nothing more than jumping on a convenient bandwagon..thus the tipping point.

In other words, if the economics (cost of implementation vs. energy savings) aren't there then use political pressure and hysteria to create demand.
