The top of today's reading list says the Eurozone balanced budget idea is a disaster ........ and the last article covers the debate about whether QE is actually deflationary.

Follow up:

  • Morgan Stanley: China to struggle in 2014 (Houses and Holes, Macro Business) The Asia/Pacific region, dominated by China, ia projected to see GDP growth average around 6.2% 2012-2015, down more than 30% from the 2003-2007 level.



  • Scarce Collateral, the Term Premium, and Quantitative Easing (Stephen D. Williamson, Washington University in St. Louis) Conclusion: The author states QE lowered inflation, contrary to stated Fed objectives, and he produces a model to explain why. This has produced a firestorm of objections, summarized by David Beckwith, who offers a Williamson-countering graphic showing core PCE (personal consumption expenditure) increasing 6-12 months following QE1 and QE2, but less responsive for QE3.
