  1. Loved this part:

    He explained that this means people who own stocks and bonds ? financiers, bankers, hedge funds? are doing fine.

    “Most of the people in this room are doing just fine,” Singer said, adding, “The ordinary person is not experiencing the effective equivalent of Dow Jones 15,000….the average person is paying a lot of money…for the necessities of life is worried about his or her job or the job of his or her family…is experiencing an economy that has basically recession level employment.”

    IOW, QE is crony capitalism on a grand scale.

  2. What we need is a 100% tax on profits gained through cronyism.
