Any views on the TALF rework?

as expected. TALF in current form does not address the securities that funds would be interested in buying, whether risk free or not

After Benankes infomercial on 60 mins, my sister told me that, "he seems like he is on the right track, i trust him".

Of course she has no idea what the defination of fiat currency is.

It scares me, because i believe the vast majority of U.S. citizens are as uneducated on these matters as my sister is (she has an honours english degree from a great university)
