The top of today's reading list is about Ron Paul explaining why he thinks bitcoin could 'destroy the dollar' ........ and the last article shows Fannie and Freddie REO (repossessed properties owned) leveling off at almost 2.5 times the level before the Great Recesssion.

Follow up:

  • Never Saw It Coming (Alan Greenspan, Foreign Affairs) Huh! You mean rational expectations do not determine macro action?


  • Euthanasia of the Economy? (Niels C. Jensen, John Mauldin, Outside the Box) The fiollowing graph shows that a decline in asset price growth rates (except for Japanese stocks) occurred as QE stages progressed. It is a stretch to say the QE caused the decline, however. Correlation is not causation - additional proof is required.
