Thin air. Print it, issue debt, buy your own debt until the bond
market implodes and dollar erodes.
China loves it, they turn a short term profit on bonds they hold so
nervously.

Every bartender or drug dealer knows what Bernanke has yet to
learn. You can't be your own best customer.
Benny is doing to bonds and debt what Greenspan did to CDO's
and the housing & stock market. Bubble.

Print it. They are now unabashedly monetizing the debt. This is
exactly how you do it and how you Weimarize the currency.
Buy gold.

world class question

of course the fed just has it printed up or issued as e credits

its member banks, sure as hell are not going to be putting up the cash
for such toxic .assets,
