    Bernanke....Hmmm. Does the reserve bank have it's own internal political forces at odds with each other or is it just pure Keynessian through and through?

      I think they just view it as the only option to satisfy the politicians irresponsibility, they are not autonomous.

          Dec 13 2012: Don't know if anyone does. As I was saying it may just be a case of this is the only way that the irresponsible spending can be financed.

          War and inflation typically go together which would excuse Bernanke somewhat.
