    How P/E's are manipulated by the government, one small true example for nitwits like CFury

    The U.S. government borrows $5B, or Bernanke prints it, obligating our children and grandchildren to indebtedness plus interest.

    That $5B is GIVEN to a foreign country as a development grant conditioned only that they use that gift to buy equipment form the U.S. I mean the money is given to you, what if you don't need any equipment, are you going to refuse the money?

    Backtrack one step, conditioned on buying *NEW* equipment from the U.S. so maybe Deere, or CAT or Boeing get the order, book the profit, paid for with borrowed dollars.

    The only trouble is, for the math challenged, due to government inefficiencies, and overhead like food stamps that are ongoing due to a fake, painted recovery $3 has to be borrowed to generate $1 in REVENUE (that's not even printed profit, folks).

    This recovery is a scam, just like this President in general.
