Wall St. Pundits have summarily declared Ben Bernanke free from any wrongdoing regarding the negative effects derived from artificial interest rates and massive increase in the Fed’s balance sheet. Specifically, most market commentators now claim with certainty that the central bank’s unprecedented manipulation of markets has been done without creating any inflation.
This assertion is untrue in every aspect. Most importantly, the Fed’s quest to boost asset prices has been accomplished by creating credit by decree. In other words, Mr. Bernanke has purchased more than $2.5 trillion worth of MBS and Treasuries with newly manufactured money within the last five years alone.
