According to Beckworth, would Bonds falling below 125 right now be proof that the economy is recovering?

Government intervention is needed to prevent future government intervention.  Nice logic.

Appeal to political affiliation. Check.

I heard a nice strategy Ireland should take up yesterday:
Take Trichet up on his offer for 1% finance and buy gold.  A little hard for a country to do sure.  But that is what the market is doing in response to QE.

“Government intervention is needed to prevent future government intervention”.

We might have been spared pink batts and school halls if the RBA had been allowed to carry more of the burden of macro stimulus, so I think it is a fair argument.
