Fed approving QE2 and the dollar tanking according to my geeky twitter feed!

My read was that it wasn't as definitive as the markets expected and that they are looking for alternative ways of boosting asset prices.

So in the space of a couple of years the US has gone from free market fundamentalism to finding ways to artificially goose asset prices, bypassing socialism on it's way to a fascist state. :lol:
