Are we moving from the crash to the bubble, dispensing with that pesky economic recovery thing altogether?

The Federal Reserve is well into its third round of “quantitative easing,” in which it buys longer-term assets to bring down long-term lending rates. We are about five and a half years into the Fed’s extraordinary monetary policies (its out-of-the-box lending programs began before the crash, in late 2007).

Barney Frank and Maxine Waters say "there is no bubble from QE1-4". Your concerns are an attempt to keep people out of their rights for home ownership.

How dare you suggest that this wont work...........

The only thing the Fed knows how to do well is to blow another bubble. They fail mostly on trying to manage the downside.
