The ultimate bubble: Treasuries (T) bubble coming?

  1. Nov 9, 2008 #1
    Is the ultimate bubble, the treasury bubble coming? Was foreigners' markedly decreased purchase of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac securities, a harbinger of the future for treasuries? Would the resultant lack of government ability to borrow be what is required to deleverage politicians? Possible dual currencies here, like for Europe, since there is greater faith in ECB than our Fed? Possible U.S. borrowing in eurodollar and yen denomination securities overseas? Is this the worse case scenario? Would a U.S. budget deficit less than $1 trillion, and other fiscal conservative measures, send the right message to creditors, both domestic and foreign? Or is it the same old spend and spend (code word for debt); what did the vote on bail out indicate? The private sector is deleveraging; but not the public sector. A generation (25 yrs) for the excesses of the last 25 yrs, to be deleveraged? Good luck to all of us

    The federal reserve will buy them. They already do. And we will have more inflation.
