The Federal Reserve just entered the real estate banking business and no one in mainstream media thinks this is insane? This is on top of continually printing monopoly money to save banks that screwed up, which Jim Rogers has blasted as 'socialism for the rich'. Is Bernake purposely trying to destroy this economy? You can't keep putting bandaids on this stuff, it just gets much worse later on. If he had just let those banks die instead of bail them out, we might have faced only a serious recession, but after this all bets are off, get ready for something similar to, if not worse than, the great depression within the next few years.
