Alan Greenspan: QE Failed To Help The Economy, The Unwind Will Be Painful, “Buy Gold”

As presented at Zero Hedge... It appears it is time for some Hillary-Clinton-esque backtracking and Liesman-esque translation of just what the former Federal Reserve Chief really meant. As The Wall Street Journal reports, the Fed chief from 1987 to 2006 says the Fed's bond-buying program fell short of its goals, and had a lot more to add.

The Terrifying Idea that the Economy Might Stay Stuck Forever Just Got More Terrifying

by Matt O’Brien Washington Post The U.S. economy has fallen, and it can’t get up. At least that’s the way it seems. That’s because our slump hasn’t really ended, even though the Great Recession officially did more than five years ago.

Russians and Chinese are Ditching the Dollar as Europeans Start Using Renminbi in Their Reserves

by Simon Black on October 17, 2014 New York, USA At present, US dollar accounts for roughly 61% of the world’s foreign exchange reserves. It’s still a safe bet for most, not because the currency is actually strong, but because so many others are already so reliant on it.
