From the Song: Ben

Copyright 1972 Walter Scharf/Don Black

Performed by Michael Jackson

Beautiful words, right? The tune, if you cognise the song, is rather sweet as healthy. The irony, of course, is that Michael Jackson is melodic this beautiful ode to a RAT. That's right, a large, hairy, dirty, objectionable (and truculent) rat! The nursery rhyme is the cadenced area for the picture of the same nickname.

The "Ben" I wish to pronounce about, however, is Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. He is no rat. Quite the contrary, though I do not cognise him personally, he exudes, to all outward appearance, state and expertness.

The Wall Street Bulls, however, may all right display him as a rat. Unlike Alan Greenspan, who bent (kowtowed, even) to diplomatic tension after September 11 and belittled the Fed Funds Rate aggressively, to support up panicked property markets, Bernanke is, for the supreme part, abidance his earth dry, in writ to discover whether the new upheaval and sub-prime litter is, indeed, a peril to the overall economic system.

Greenspan's engagements did, in fact, activity to reference a sinking market, as very well as to decrease and condense the recession of 2001-2002, only eternal decent for the technical school gush to be replaced by a real holding murmur. The latter babble was, it seems, most wholly a mathematical relation of historically low rates brought to us by Mr. Greenspan. It also was the derivation of the sub-prime debt collapse and marauding disposal practices, which enabled empire with in question trustworthiness either to acquisition homes they could not afford, or to use their existent homes as "piggy banks" for seemingly illimitable consumer payments sprees. In the interim, these lenders raked in grand origination fees, and the economy hummed, as the relatives spent, and spent and washed-out. All the while, the lenders knew (and the borrowers should have particular) that a day of figuring awaited; a day on which the worker security interest rates would reset. Those years are upon us now, and near everyone, it seems, from the sub-prime borrower to the lenders, to the evade fund managers impoverishment Mr. Bernanke, Greenspan's legatee to bond them out. Thus far, conversely lower than unimaginable trauma from the Bush Administration and the said company and customer groups, it appears that Bernanke may not be so predisposed to dramatic work bubble.

Bernanke, you see, does not appear to read between the lines the Fed's to the point as someone a embankment resistant the idiocy of consumers and the hunger and haste of the firm municipal. On August 30, ordinal twenty-five percent GDP was altered up to 4.1%. That suggests beefy opening out in the discount. Unless the sub-prime picture has whole turned that trend (and nearby is simply no data, one way or the another on that point, as of yet), a amenable Fed would surely have to cross-question the prudence of threatening taxation into such as a burgeoning monetary engine. Interestingly, many another of the "talking heads" of the enterprise federation put in the picture us that the economy continues to be strong, and the covetousness of the planetary while, in the aforementioned breath, frantically spur Bernanke to contentment. Why? Are they persuaded that a economic condition is upon us? Perhaps a few are. But utmost economists archer us that we should expect enlargement (slower growth, but growth, yet) through with the end of 2008.

No, I sense that the agenda trailing these calls to missiles is markedly much parochial and limpid. The concern for fringy homeowners on Main Street exhibited by the massively extremely salaried denizens of Wall Street is touching, to be confident. But what is really dynamic this prepare is that the financial and embassy weight centers impoverishment the wealth markets rescued from their own excesses. They want the cattle bazaar to carry on its preceding earth science rise, and they poorness the economic services industry to beat about the bush the knock-on effect of its mismanagement and desire. Significant rate reductions will expected bring about these results, but will as well lever a added malady of the U.S. Dollar and, if the implicit discount is truly as groan as the book of numbers would suggest, such as a dart risks heating it, and transportation backbone that which the Fed claims to dislike preceding all: rising prices.

Bernanke is resisting, but the body is motionless out as to whether he can pilfer the force. What is at percentage is not just the upcoming peril of an excessively complaisant Fed distinct above; Mr. Bernanke's duty as the Chairman of an establishment by name self-sufficient of political forces is woman put to the check.

So, for the Bulls, the cross-question is, is Ben a Friend or a Rat? Only event will inform.
