In this week’s commentary, John Mauldin looks at two highly relevant concepts: easy money (call it QE, money printing, helicopter money, or whatever the term) and economic bubbles (based on his latest book, Code Red, which he launched last week). Obviously the two are linked to each other. Although in the minds of central bankers there is not necessarily a direct effect between both, we simple human beings all know that the inherent risks are huge. You would not be reading this article if you believed otherwise.
We know that this is going to end badly, as explained in We Created The Conditions For Catastrophic Failure and in 2013 – Start of Seismic Shifts in Money, Metals, Markets (among many other articles).
They key in the thinking of central banks is that policy makers believe they can “manage” the effects of their monetary policies. It is somehow comparable with driving a car; even in a risky situation, the driver can adjust the rest of the drive to get back home safely. This assumes they can somehow decide on the driving conditions, even if the remainder of the trip is on an ice road. This “blindness” is reflected in the first chart of Mauldin’s article.
