The one headline we have been waiting for for over four years has just hit:
- BOK KIM SAYS WORLD MAY FACE RATE RISK IF U.S. EXITS FROM QE
Not when, if. And there you have it: if the Fed exits, the world (and most certainly Japan) gets it. Thus, for the sake of the children (who will have inherit about $100 trillion in debt but don’t worry: debt is an asset as some “analysts” will promise) Bernanke can never exit. QE…D
And since never is a little longer than 2016/2017, at some point in the next few years Bernanke will be the proud owner of all marketable Treasury paper. All of it.
