WARNING: How The Federal Reserve Has Lit the Fuse That Will Very Likely Spike Major Price Inflation

Click for larger view.
The Federal Reserve balance sheet turned up in September at the time of the spike in over-night interest rates. The Fed increased its balance sheet to reverse the interest rate climb. Since then the balance sheet has increased by $306 billion, or 8.13%, as the Federal Reserve has conducted repo operations almost daily to flood the system with overnight liquidity.

Austrian-lites, who panicked at that the time, and thought a recession was imminent, completely misunderstood the economics of the situation.

This Fed money pump, as I have explained in the EPJ Daily Alert, has derailed any chance of a recession in the near future.

But this Fed money pump is unlikely to not have consequences. The threat of a major escalation in price inflation is higher now than at any time since just before the Great Recession.

Consider yourself warned.
