In the latest round of government “stimulus” the Fed has announced  that it will be buying $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities each month for an indefinite period of time.
The logic here:
The effect of this will be:
We’ve heard for years from some incorrigible economists that what we need is the Fed to pump up the real estate market to get people spending again. Their answer is: more debt, more spending, less savings and investment.
This is what has been happening for years to no avail, of course, and the Fed is now just turning it up a notch. I’m sure recovery is right around the corner.
The definition of insanity/Keynesianism: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
