Jim Rogers is spot on again about our current crisis and the fact that we need to let these banks and companies fail to restore confidence in the markets and let the bad debts get liquidated.  What we are doing now it hurting the savers in the country by pushing interest rates down and once we get a recovery, we will saddle the taxpayers with inflation after all this money printing.

Marc Faber made a very astute observation about this current economic crisis. I believe letting the market takes its course and de-leverage to a reasonable level is the best thing we can do right now. The will also help reform the currency and bring the price level down to something more balanced with wages. We really do need to look at how we issue and manage our currency.

The boom bust cycle that comes with the fractional reserve banking system and adjustments in the interest rate to try and control the availability of credit is not very healthy for the country long term and tends to transfer real wealth to the people who get their hands on the new creation of money through credit expansion and then have the ability to make investments in the market that are almost a sure bet when you know that the increase in the monetary base is going to increase prices across the board.
