the Federal Reserve's liquidity pumping is largely responsible for the nation's economic woes. The Fed promoted the speculation that led to the tech bubble bursting in 2000, the Fed blew up the mortgage bubble (which burst and plunged the economy into deep recession), and the Fed has prolonged our economic malaise by continuing to pump liquidity, which has prevented the "patient" from properly healing by delveraging and purging himself of malinvestment. Now, incredibly, the Fed has published a mea culpa of sorts: research that suggests its own organization is responsible for the Great Recession.
