Thanks for responding, Michael. I think that even money targeted to Main Street ends up in the gears of big business, and the velocity of money still seems really weak at the consumer level.

Flooding the financial markets with money is not the same thing as flooding main street with money. And that isn't happening.

Winner & Losers From Amazon’s Proposed Purchase Of Whole Foods
23 hours ago

Amazon is planning on cutting staff at Whole Foods, which will likely make shopping there a miserable experience. When people see the real Amazon at work, in the real economy, they will be able to form their opinions about how things might be in the other sections of the company. A filthy Whole Foods will tarnish Amazon.

The Pin To Pop This Mother Of All Bubbles?
5 days ago

I agree with you and Jeffrey Snider that things are definitely are not optimal. People adapt, and have consolidated to multigenerational housing and underground economy in many instances just to survive. The pressure of globalization with a downward pressure on wages and an upward pressure on housing costs could eventually reach a breaking point. The central banks need to at least let main street consolidate before stealing again.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that.
