    One flow is from the Fed to government via the purchase of Treasuries. The government then spends it on goods and services or subsidies. But the effect that pushes down interest rates is the Fed hemorrhaging money in various directions.

    They're buying everything with 'Our' money, including Real Estate Nationwide, especially Trophy Properties, including recently: the Waldorf Astoria ($2 Billion) and $50,000,000 condos and Mansions.
    Yep. But for those whom think unregulated capitalism is all that and a bag of chips, we have no concerned about foreign owned American assets.

    Along with CNOOC, which is 100-percent owned by the communist Chinese government, Sinopec Group also is purchasing energy interests in the U.S.

    Sinopec Group is the largest shareholder of Sinopac Corporation, a state-owned investment company incorporated in 1998 largely to acquire and operate oil and natural gas interests worldwide.

    How does the purchase of treasuries flow money into German public debt?

    I was actually referring to the US, but maybe I had misread the thread. In any event, the EZB is now doing the same things the Fed experimented with. So the statement holds for Euroland as well with certain important structural differences. The main two are that in Euroland there is less free movement of labor and very little fiscal help from the center or other member countries. This means that while the EZB is hemorrhaging money the fiscal spending is much more regionally confined than in the US. This means that the economic imbalances are much harder to correct for, making the Euroland experiment quite different, though, the central bank instruments are the same.
