Bernanke - What a surprise!


Bloody hell, I’m no expert on the economy but then again neither are economists (2007/8, I rest my case), but the Fed has taken all of us by surprise.

It’s nice to see. I remember when the Fed or Bank of England could surprise the market and commentators but it feels like it’s been so bloody long since that happened!


Hey @alexbarr I agree. It is what Central bankers should be doing in my view and it is what they have been so terribly remiss at for too long.

I also think it should be taken as yet another sign that we are at long last heading back to normality in the US and also here is lovely old Blighty if I might use the colloquial.

Europe too seems to be heading on the right track.
