    Didn’t have time to read the whole piece this morning but wasn’t encouraged by some of the author’s priors. For example, statements in the opening paragraph like this: “…given that the government has no intention to hold private debt on its balance sheet forever, at some point the Fed must sell it.

    WTF? How does one hold a security with a maturation date “forever” and why wouldn’t the government just just do that rather than sell?

      I didn’t get past that Chinese University! This is one of those Ex-Im bank products Obama makes American tax payers finance!!!

      A plot by the FAA and the Commerce Dept. to undermine heterosexuality and lean-protein providers! Why I could just shoot someone if Obama hadn’t taken my gun.

      I will never read anything past the headline again!

      Where are my Rick Perry style reading glasses?!

        There’s a point where pushing the boundaries of Poe’s Law completely overshoots parody or even simple caricature and becomes tendentious dickhead. Capiche.

    Hey Li, why don’t you give up the academia and just get out of QE as soon as possible. And while you’re at it, get out of ZIRP too. And if things don’t work out, then tell the US Congress to do their job.
