davidstockmanscontracorner.com / By David Stockman / April 21, 2014

I always thought that Mario Draghi was a complete dunce on fundamental economics, but he has now sealed the case in his own words. The reason the ECB is about ready to unleash its own version of QE, it seems, is that “moar inflation” would facilitate [...]

Chronicling The QE Follies: Bernanke’s Swell Gift To The Big Four Banks

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / By David Stockman / April 18, 2014

I recently pointed out that the Fed’s 5-year campaign to drive the 30-year mortgage rate from 6.5% to 3.3% had accomplished nothing except to touch off another of those pointless “refi” booms which enable homeowners to swap an existing mortgage for a new one carrying a [...]
