De Federal Reserve zet de rente op nul… ZIRPedidoodah!

To promote the ongoing economic recovery and to help ensure that inflation, over time, is at levels consistent with its mandate, the Committee decided today to keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4 percent. The Committee currently anticipates that economic conditions--including low rates of resource utilization and a subdued outlook for inflation over the medium run--are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate at least through mid-2013. The Committee also will maintain its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its securities holdings. The Committee will regularly review the size and composition of its securities holdings and is prepared to adjust those holdings as appropriate.
Ben Bernanke's FEDeral untouchables

En ook nog een citaat van mij, de avond voor deze statement:

“China is geen filantroop”

En iemand moet Bernanke duidelijk maken dat Amerika geen Japan is.
