    Something does not add up

    Let us assume that the labor market does not improve for the next 12, 24, 36 months (there seems to be every reason that it might deteriorate. The main reason for this is labor substituition from cheaper foreign sources in a non stop manner). Would the Fed be simply buying the bonds and bloat their balance sheet by another 3 to 4 trillion dollars at the end of the next 36 months? Like what they are doing now? To me this is inconceivable. It may appear that inflation is not felt. But then surely, foreigners will wake up and would start to wonder why they are sending their goods just for some paper from Bernanke and Federal govt. The only way out could be to plunder the mother earth and send the raw materials from America or to stop outsourcing.It seems to me that both the politicians and the industrialists are selling America cheap and care very little about their own people. Both stocks and bonds seem to be terribly ignoring this. Something is not adding up. America cannot run on empty for long.
