Welcome to Capital Account. The Fed gave the QE-addicted markets another dose of its stimulus drug today as it announced another securities purchase program. The Fed launched an open-ended program to buy $40 billion in mortgage backed securities each month, a program that will continue until the labor market improves. The Fed also committed to record low interest rates even after the economy strengthens. To what end will the Fed pursue this accommodative stance? In response to this action gold climbed to a six month high. Marc Faber, Gloom Boom and Doom publisher, has said that he will not sell any of his gold as long as people like Ben Bernanke are running the world's central banks. We ask Dr.Faber about his near term outlook for gold, and what he thinks of Ben Bernanke's monetary policy.
Also, an editorial from Xinhua, the official Chinese news agency, warns that massive spending to boost China's economy could be detrimental. How does this effect China's growth or slow down? We ask Marc Faber, founder of Marc Faber limited and author of the book "Tomorrow's Gold," about likelihood of a contraction in China and other Asian economies.
