Really, was a lowering of the discount rate by 25 bp 40 hours ahead of schedule really going to solve anything or prove anything? It just tells me that Bernanke is the worst Fed chairman in the history of the Fed and is wearing out the panic button. It is all so transparent that these Fed actions are intended to try to support the stock market and try to improve trader psychology instead of actually being used to sustain economic growth like their mandate states. I thought it would be difficult to have a worse Fed chairman than Greenspan but Bernanke takes the cake. Bring back Volcker, or replace Bernanke with Fisher, someone with a pair of balls that isn't Wall Street's bus boy.
