Floating exchange rates plus low inflation = prosperity.
so if we have manipulated exchange rates plus falsely-low inflation, what does that get us?

fake exchange rates + fake inflation numbers = fake prosperity.

question: will we have a fake recession?

nah. it'll be real enough. in fact...

"It seems your political affiliation has a lot to do with whether or not you think we're in a recession. Saying yes to the "R" word are 70 percent of democrats, 56 percent of independents, and 38 percent of republicans (http://andersoncooper360review.blogspot.com/). I wonder what would happen to those numbers if, say, Clinton was suddenly magically president, but everything else was the same."
