    Not exactly. They conduct asset purchases as a means of both providing liquidity and maintaining (through reverse repo OMO) the level of reserves in the banking system. Rates have been near zero since the end of 2008. Ensuring the stability of asset prices in a period dominated by uncertainty is essential in restoring normal economic growth.



    We reside in a world where wealth dictates both power and standard of living.
    I noticed that you blatantly left out all my comments about Obama's economic policies being at the heart of this non-recovery.

    But hey, I won't hold it against you....for if I were sitting on the left side of the aisle, I would have avoided them like the plague too.

    IDK, ask Japan why it just didn't work for them. I remember when i was just a lad in 1990, they said Japan would eclipse the U.S. as the worlds largest economy.

    Mercantilism is dead.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Maximizing productive output is never dead. You only need policy to promote it rather than artificially supporting an economy that depends on consumption...

    Because they are both incoherent and a waste of time.

    Given your inability to accurately describe the motivations behind asset purchases, I am not convinced you are in a position to make a case against Keynesianism. What i do know is you will learn something from our exchanges if you give yourself a chance.

    A bit harsh, but I have been known to be that way as well...

    What you describe is not mercantilism. What about Japan? How does China consume outside its productive capacity without a trade deficit?

    It's after 8:00 in my neck of the woods. It's wine time. Tomorrow is a new day, and if it is a case against Keynesianism you request, I'll be right on it......tomorrow
    Cheers Kushinator, have a good evening.

    I never used the term, and if China were consuming outside its productive capacity, it would be running deficits. It has excess capacity, but without the ability for it to consume...

    I've been dabbing all day. And you want to make winey excuses.

    There is nothing you will provide that has not already been posted here at least a dozen times. Do yourself a favor, and review those threads.
