Whats in the Bank of England's garbage bag? At least they are having this conversation in the US, partly due to Ron Paul's bill.

This ties in nicely with the recent discussion here about GS and how they got a free pass when the Fed / Treasury bailed out AIG. The paid nothing for the benefit that they received from the prevention of AIG's collapse.

It is good to see that this is becoming a bit more of a mainstream view. Hopefully it can make the leap from MSNBC to larger media outlets .......

This is going to be long drawn out game. I might be very naive but I beleive that the right thing often happens in the long run even if it doesn't in the short term.

Yeah, hopefully it will get talked about a bit more. It sure should be talked about. Vince Cable has mentioned it a bit. But it's lost in the noise of MP expenses, Gordon Brown's career prospects, and swine flu.

I posted this clip yesterday from Benanke's testimony, but it is an important one, it demonstrates how massive the dodgy dealing is.

*****Fed Planning 15-Fold Increase In US Monetary Base*****

(DrDoolittle) Jul 22, 15:11

The fed is planning moves that would more than double its balance-sheet assets by September to $4.5 trillion from $1.9 trillion. Whether expressing approval or concern over the fed’s intentions, most commentators fail to understand the real magnitude of the projected expansion of the US monetary base because they don’t take into account the amount of dollars circulating abroad.

At least 70 percent of all US currency is held outside the country, and this means the US monetary base is considerably smaller than the fed’s overall balance sheet. Take, for example, the true US domestic money supply at the beginning of September 2008, before the fed started its quantitative easing. From the Federal Reserve’s website, we know that currency in circulation was 833 Billion. This translates as 583 Billion dollars circulating abroad (70 percent), and 250 Billion dollars circulating domestically (30 percent). Since the bank reserve balances held with Federal Reserve Banks were 12 billion, that gives us a 262 Billion domestic monetary base as of September 2008. Now compare that to the projected US domestic monetary base for September 2009 which is 3,818 billion (4,500 billion – 583 billion (dollars circulating abroad) – 99 billion (other fed liabilities not part of the money supply)). The fed’s planned balance sheet expansion results in a 15-fold increase in the base money supply.

This is a staggering devaluation of the US currency! It means that for every dollar in America in September 2008, the fed is going to create fourteen more of them! Below is a rough sketch of what this increase in US monetary base would look like:

This 15-Fold Increase will be impossible to reverse
