What next?

The "pushing on a string" with interest rates has reached a limit.  The big boys are out of ammunition,
and the world economy is still contracting.

goodness knows...
Zero interest rates are a very bad idea.  #846193

Very simple logic:
If you try to distinguish trading money (Tauschgeld) from speculation money (Spekulationsgeld) you will see that moderate interest rates promote trade, and so production. Zero interest rates only promote speculation, and profit from speculation is higher. In times of increasing money volume (Geldmenge) speculating is even rather safe. Since economy can only be stable when production is strong zero interest rates are bad for the economy because there is even less money left for production trading.
Just imagine all that virtual money (virtual, because there's no coutervalue) circulating in the high finance world would suddenly find its way into the ordinary citizens' pockets!
But what's logic when most states are overindebted.

totally agree. All those high-flying speculators forget that, at the end of the day, real people have to create real money to buy real products. But only a crash could get that into bankers' and politicians' heads.

IMO, the crash is already locked in.

hasn't hit though yet, not enough to change things
It's partially hidden here  #846210

by reported unemployment and job-creation lies, and such as this:

If not for food stamps, we'd have soup lines.  And all being funded by fiat money.  We used to joke
about the printing presses running day and night.  No longer necessary.  Most money today exists
as computer digits.  A few keystrokes on the Fed mainframe can create whatever amount is deemed

I don't think that's enough. It has to get really bad to change, sadly.
