Everybody "knows" about this $80B? Obviously not, since the 45B for the past year has come out of revenues driven by selling short term debt and buying long term debt, thereby raising long term debt prices and lowering interest rates.
There is no short term debt left to TWIST into long term debt, these new purchases are strictly from printed money starting this year.
The street may be reacting to this doubling of what looks like TWIST--but is purely inflationary designed to degrade the dollar to make us more "competitive".
I can't wait for the dollar to be worthless so we can be the largest seller of goods to the world for essentially--free, since the dollar will be worthless. I'll be a millionaire, but that will be the price of a Big Mac.
