China Moves to Prick The Global Asset Bubble

A few months ago I wrote the article, “Who Is Going to Prick The Global Asset Bubble?”

In that article, I asked the question of who is going to stop the money plumbing first to slow the global asset bubble that is dangerously forming.

Today, we got the answer.

China ordered banks Friday to increase reserves for a second time in a month to cool a credit boom without resorting to interest rate hikes that might derail a recovery in the world's third-largest economy.

Chinese leaders worry that a stimulus-driven torrent of lending is fueling a dangerous bubble in stock and real estate prices.

They also are concerned that the flood of money surging through the economy is adding to inflation.”

Not to be outdone by China, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke recently began addressing how the Fed would begin to unwind the trillions they injected into the market over the last two years. 

But then he quickly said he wasn't going to start the process for many months just to keep the market from crashing. But enough was said.

The Fed is clearly trying to formulate a plan to remove the trillions they injected without causing the market to crash.  The only problem is that the government support is now so extensive and so influential that there is no way for them to extract the stimulus.

It would be like removing two legs from a chair and expecting it to remain standing. 

For example; last year the government was the only lender to finance home mortgages.  That means that if the government did purchase home mortgage, through Fannie, Freddie, etc. that no homes would have been sold. 

There is no exit plan what will work without collapsing the economy, which means they are not going to be able to remove the trillions they injected. 

They are more likely to add trillions more to finance Obama's budget.

The consequences of leaving the trillions in the market will result is major inflation as the money filters down into the economy and as China and the rest of the world reduce there support for the dollar.

What Has Government Done to Our Money?

Rothbard gives us an exceptionally clear, detailed description of what money is and how it has come to be manipulated by governments and central bankers into almost worthless inflationary fiat paper currency. He then explains how gold became the most respected and trustworthy currency of choice and the prospect of either hyperinflation or the greatest depression the world has ever seen may be arriving in the very near future.

The Case Against the Fed

This book, written by Murray Rothbard, an economist and historian of fairly well known repute, is a scathing attack on not only the Federal Reserve, but the interests that created this institution. Rothbard explains how the Federal Reserve is the true source in the destruction of wealth, which has led to the destruction of the middle class and continues to sift money into the hands of the wealthiest.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.
