Episode 144 – What Can We Expect Going Forward After The Election

            Now that the election is over, we need to move past the red and blue teams and take a realistic look at where we’re headed.  As I’ve mentioned before, it doesn’t matter who’s in charge, we’re still going to go over that financial cliff; and we need to be prepared for that. As I’ve mentioned several times, I don’t get into politics very often on the podcast because being prepared is non-political, as well as non-religious.  However, I think too many people have been assuming that things were going to be different after the election. … Continue reading

QE3 to Infinity – What Does It Mean?

What Was The QE3 Announcement - What Does It Mean? Here is what the Fed announced: The central bank will buy $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities a month, and is willing to take more action if the labor market doesn’t improve, its policy-setting committee said. The Fed also extended an existing stimulus effort known as Operation Twist, under which the central bank has been selling short-term bonds and using the proceeds to buy longer-term bonds in an effort to bring down long-term rates. Officials also said they expect to keep short-term interest rates near zero until at least mid-2015, past the … Continue reading

The first two rounds of Quantitative Easing haven’t done anything to improve the economy, only prolong the pain and agony that so many are now going through.

QE3: Get Ready For Hyperinflation!

Here’s a recipe for disaster: “…the Fed will keep injecting money into the economy until growth picks up and unemployment starts dropping significantly.” QE1 and QE2 didn’t work, so now we need QE3. You would think that they’d learn, but remember, these are the same people that didn’t see the 2008 Recession coming and said that everything was fine. Until it wasn’t fine. Not to mention, can you point to anyone, besides bankers, that was actually helped by QE1 or 2? Me neither. [From QE3: Reactions to the Fed’s big stimulus move – ] On Thursday, the Federal Reserve announced yet … Continue reading

The Next One Will Be The Big One « Jim Sinclair’s Mineset

Haven’t covered too much about the economy lately; I hit on the economy so much last year that I want to make sure that we cover other things as well. However, it’s important to realize that the economy is still highly unstable.  This means that, at any time, the markets can turn upside down and crash, or fall, or any number of things that will cause an “unsettled period of time.”  Like, recessions, depressions, collapse of the dollar, things like that.  Remember, we still haven’t recovered from the last recession, though some say that we’re still in it and some … Continue reading
