You guys are cheating... Loosers : Joe Public Winners: Wall street Fed Res : Works for Wall Street Will it get worse, yes !!! From:http://bigpicture.typepad.com/ Unlike the spendthrifts here in the US, other Central Bankers around the world understand what the true definition of inflation is. Consider the following: The Reserve Bank of Australia hiked rates to an 11 year high (due to inflation concerns). And, Miller Tabak's Peter Boockvaar points out that, over the past month, Iceland, Romania and Mexico have raised interest. While the RBA move was expected, the Australian $ rallied to a 23 1/2 yr high vs the US$. All of this reminds me of that scene from Crocodile Dundee: That's not a Central Bank (pulls out 14 inch Bowie knife) Now THAT'S a Central bank!
