    So I should buy bonds because the fed is going to print more money and use that to buy bonds? Doesn't this eventually end in inflation? Pls RV have Pippa and Steph and Reyes talk this one out...

    Look up FLTOTALSL on F.R.E.D. Consumer is borrowing like crazy. Look at loans held by the federal government. Up to a trillion. Totally exploding!!

    nice focus on the housing issue. MSM has moved on, but Reyes seems to hint that there's a whole 'nother round of Fedintervention coming down the pike. QE4. let's hope they get more creative this time.

    The Rainmaker is usually right. Ignor his comments at your peril.

    He's been 'early to the idea that interest rates are going to fall'? They've been falling since 1981. This guy is suspect.

    Fed needs increased deficit spending for QE4. 25-50 bps hike will hit stock (and home) prices sufficiently to get Congress and public on board. They will pop the bubble first, then QE4 & NIRP.

    Spot on as always, very interesting to think about GenX, all of the media focus seems as Alejandro said on the boomers and millennials
