High-Level Federal Reserve Official: Fed Intentionally “Front-Loaded An Enormous [Stock] Market Rally in Order to Create a Wealth Effect”

Central banks – including the Bank of Japan, Bank of Israel, Bank of Switzerland and the Czech Republic – have been buying stocks to prop up their nations’ stock markets.

We’ve noted for years that Fed policy is aimed at boosting stocks, as well.

Today, the decade-long former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas – a voting member of the the Fed’s principal monetary policymaking group (the Federal Open Market Committee) – admitted (full interview):

What The Fed did, and I was part of it, was front-loaded an enormous rally starting in 2009 … in order to create a wealth effect…

I wouldn’t blame [the declining stock market]  on China.


An uncomfortable digestive period is likely now.

Indeed, only higher income brackets ever liked the Fed’s “wealth effect” policies.

    “An uncomfortable digestive period is likely now.” This is an understatement.The central bankers still believe themselves to be in control!

    Well if the FED were dissolved altogether, a majority of the national debt would magically disappear. The FED is not federal and it is NOT a reserve. It is a privately owned, jewish run bank, owned by the Rothschilds – who own ALL the central banks of the world. ALL OF THEM – including the International Bank of Settlements (IBS). The FED LOANS money to the US governemt – at interest. The only way to pay the loans back is to borrow more money. Ever toss a snowball down a hill?? That’s your FED – and your economy.

    The markets were tanking last I checked; maybe the central banks need to print moar of their local monopoly money.

    Its easier for the Chinese government to cheat; they just sell U.S. treasuries into the hole.
