My internet-friend from That-Place-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named has been educating me on macro economics for a number of years now, and making a good case that the Federal Reserve and other Central Banks are caught between a rock and a hard place. He calls Ben Bernanke "Helicopter Ben".
And here I begin to see how all this connects.
The world is on the cusp of a world-wide financial and monetary crisis. I don't know what to do about it, but millions of others are going to be caught totally unawares.
