Deepening Debt Crisis: The Bernanke Reappointment: Be Afraid, Very Afraid
06 Feb 2010
"The prospect is for U.S. consumers to be hit by a triple whammy. They must pay higher prices for the goods they buy as the dollar declines, making imports more expensive. And the government will be spending less on the economy’s circular flow as a result of Pres. Obama’s three-year spending freeze to slow the budget deficits. Meanwhile, states and cities are raising taxes to balance their own budgets as tax receipts fall. Consumes and indeed the entire economy must run more deeply into debt simply to break even (or else see living standards eroded).

The banks will lend more to keep the debt pyramid growing to enable consumers, businesses and local government to avoid contraction.
