Ben Bernanke Siezes The Moment

The Obama administration is quickly descending into confusion, as political distractions plague an urgent fix for economic meltdown. The Federal Reserve Bank has stepped into the breach, volunteering on its own to explode its balance sheet and print the money necessary while the Treasury branch remains under siege.
Typically economic policy is designed and driven by Treasury, but with the insane firestorm over bonuses and politics, the historic, massive, and complex nature of the problems, and a severe lack of senior staff, the Treasury has gone AWOL at exactly the time it is needed most.
The Fed answers to no one, and its unilateral actions yesterday – taken on a scope of breathtaking proportion – can only mean confusion and desperation are gripping the highest levels of power on the planet.

If the message is anything, it’s that there is no longer time for the delicacies of democracy.

“To be Honest, We’re Worried”

 It was a bad day for America. Exports slumped to nightmare levels as Barack Obama prepared for a weekend meeting of the G20 nations. Worse, China signalled its worry and extreme concern over its investment in America. Right at the time Obama has to beg the Chinese for trillions of dollars in bond bailouts, China starts freaking out about the sorry state of its current investment.

It used to be a stress free, symbiotic relationship. The Chinese would buy all the bonds America wanted, in exchange for its silence on Tibet, Taiwan, and the torture thingy. The money would get printed and factored down to the consumer, who would in turn give it back to China in exchange for water toys, Barbie Dolls, and plasma TV’s. Worked like a charm.

ar-logo1America is in debt because it wants to be. Unlike any other country in the world, America has believed for a generation that its Debt was the fountainhead of its power, the source of its wealth and excess. America has deliberately and with full intent run deficits and financed them through debt, a veritable ATM of cash with which it buys its Economic Hegemony, and makes payments on its future. It’s hard to solve a problem that isn’t one, to the blind that will not see.

Shock and Awe in Mudville March 4, 2009

ar-logo1Naomi Kline, in her seminal book “Shock Doctrine”, proffered that in times of crisis, when the attention of its citizens is narrowly focused on a crushing event of national scope, a state will often use that event to push through a series of policies it may not otherwise be able to. While nobody really cares at the moment, momentous changes are made wilfully, and with no small kind of malice towards democracy.

The most infamous example would be Iraq of course, when a small set of evil American ideologues launched a shocked American public into endless awe under the guise of 9/11. By the time democracy awoke, the irreversible deed had been done – and done in a fashion a true democracy would never have otherwise accepted.
