Members of the Federal Reserve’s policy-setting committee pared back their expectations for short-term U.S. economic growth as a result of tepid consumer spending and employment growth, Federal Open Market Committee minutes reveal. The FOMC warned that a potential intensification of the European debt crisis and the looming fiscal cliff also present ‘significant downside risks’ to the outlook. As such, the FOMC considered new policy options, including a large-scale asset purchase program and the extension of the Fed’s low-rate pledge to jump-start the economy.

But not just any bank but the bank of last resort and what does the one in [drag-hi] do but buy up all the debt of other countries.

Now we should all be saying well done but instead we are saying he`s behind you and his name is not Abanazar, but something much worse the ” Ghost of Christmas Of Yet To Come ” namely a huge ” Debt Mountain ” but in the meantime people will still dress up and act out the pantomime until the very last act.

The it will be CURTAIN`S
