    Whatever happens we don't need the QE 3 plan. This will drop the value of the dollar even further. Although the government and media denies it, we already have a fair amount if inflation right now. Prices are skyrocketing on everything and the value of the dollar is becoming less and less. I'm not sure the US can survive four more years of Obama.

    Unconventional tools are also needed to stimulate growth and outlook for labor markets and I think thats what Fed's strategy would be.
    It must also be taken into account that our economic woes are inexorably tied to our foreign policy. Follies initiated in the past and continuing todate contribute majorly to our economic and fiscal failures.
    Romney is sadly lacking in specifics on both accounts. Bashing China is easier said than done. Both China & Russia are no longer the 'toe liners' anymore.
    Though it must be said for him that last night he did swallow his earlier empty headed stance and declared to the effect that we can't kill our way through the mess, we have created for ourselves I might add.
    We need to have Obama for a second term.

    Good morning @ saywhat. Good to see youre no longer blocked. I was able to watch a little more of last nites debate than the previous ones because Romney wasnt quite so rude as prior. I did catch the lies he got caught in though lol.

    Economy of nation has become more global just as was planned and the devaluation of the dollar has not harmed pverall growth of GDP.
    That it only oncreases a small percentage per year is not a real problem for the ones who are receiving that percentage.
    That fewer and fewer citizens see even that small a percent growth does not weaken the nation but only the peoples buying power.
    A 10 or even 20% drop in most american familys buying power does not put them onto poverty and if taken on a world basis american individuals still have greatest % of disposable invome, at least what we call the middle class does.

    The middle class those over 45K TO 200 K may be having to take up a notch in belt but they have a long ways to go before they have to downsixe their whole wardrobe.
    It is still not just availible personal income, cash in hand that gives impression of wealth but avvessability to credit that seperates working poor from middle class.
    An interesting note on credit today is, while the interest rate on credit fell.
    the amounts of credit debt increased.
    More people found they could afford to carry more initial debt.
    A lot like refinancing your home, where your monthly payment may be lower but your original debt level has increased.
    More visible cash in pocket but debt extended.
    That will hit the wall within next 4 years and decline percipitously by 2020 when and where they at 45K to That 250 K will see both their buying power and access to credit shrink by at least35 to 45%.
    Then the new wardrobe at discount sales begins.

      Congress has been using the SS as their own personal slush fund for years.
      That is well known.
