Over the past 115 years, many monetary experiments have been implemented by the FED’s officials, but, to me, one quote says it all: “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!”
It looks like 10 years of central banking liquidity infusions that make their portfolios as bloated as they’ve ever been aren’t enough for the greediest of them all, those that made money off of wars, opium and enslavement, among other illegal ventures.
It’s funny how things work. Yesterday, FED chairman, Jerome Powell, officially stated that the economy is slowing, just three months after he claimed it was healthy, strong, robust, and any other word that his $2,000/hr statement writer manages to cook-up.
This is the closest we’ve come to a pivotal moment for the global economy since 2009. Today is the pinnacle of the economic experiment, led by the Federal Reserve and followed by all central banks, globally.
The S&P 500 is up four weeks in a row – just like it was at the beginning of 2018.
