In the unlikely chance that Arkansas wins tomorrow - BennyAndTheInkJets
Can we combine SWC forces and bring armageddon to tRant? Good job last night, very impressive on offense. Looked much smoother than when Manziel was there minus the second half of 2012. Obviously one game, as ours will be tomorrow, so a lot can change quickly (Brandon Allen looked like a very ef...

Anyone else excited about the Alibaba IPO? - BennyAndTheInkJets
I usually don't care about IPOs other than ones like Facebook where I know some mid 20's trader is having the worst day of his/her life defending the stock with their boss over their shoulder threatening their job (and probably life for the FB IPO). But this one is huge, looking like it will be ...

I think its time we talk about the next Fed policy tool (9/17 Update - Neutered) - BennyAndTheInkJets
[b]Historical Context[/b] Before 1990, the Fed's biggest tool for influencing monetary policy was commercial bank's required reserves. From 1990 to 2008, it was the Federal Funds target rate. Since 2008, it's been quantitative easing and forward guidance. Going forward, I believe its going to be th...

Yellen's Testimony to Congress - BennyAndTheInkJets
So far she isn't really giving Congress anything. A lot more boring than Bernanke but still, I'm glad she isn't giving them really anything to bite on. She kept saying 'validation', 'deliberate', etc.. My favorite quote was actually from Brad Sherman, "I know you're very busy with your job, so I...

In honor of Ben's last FOMC meeting, let's appreciate Bernank the Tank - BennyAndTheInkJets
Bernanke's last meeting as chairman was this past Wednesday :wah:, so I think MT needs to give this man the love he deserves. I was talking to a former Fed affiliate yesterday that dropped a quote about about Bernanke that I wholeheartedly agree with. [b]Incrementalism is the riskiest strategy in...

So what were you wrong about in the preseason? - BennyAndTheInkJets
Since self-reflection and humility are qualities present in all ranters, tell me, what did you expect in the preseason that didn't happen? I've always thought Cam Cameron was overrated as an OC and QB developer and that he wouldn't get LSU's offense to the point that tiger fans were hoping. Mett ...

What Actually Happens Oct. 17th - BennyAndTheInkJets
Contrary to what the media will tell you, on October 17th the world will still spin if we don't have a deal. The Treasury will have $30B on hand on 10/17 and will have ~$100B on 10/31. Then Treasury will then pull in ~$150-$200B of tax receipts a month and have ~$25-30B in debt servicing payments pe...

Federal Reserve Tools | Past and Present - BennyAndTheInkJets
I think it's pretty obvious that the Fed has changed over the past decade, and the tools they used to use have changed as well.
