History Rhymes - With Which Recession This Time?

The Fed has indicated it will swap whatever bad debt there is in the banking and shadow financial system (running into the ? trillions) with US-treasuries. Seems likely there'll soon be co-ordinated CB action to prevent a true collapse of the dollar.

The main fly in the ointment is the extent of leverage. If it's too much, banks are already insolvent and the ensuing market panic will ensure a deflationary depression with widespread deleveraging 1930s style.

Savers dont do well in Japan due to the low interest rate but at least they are better off than the boom-time borrowers.
