Video: Jim Rickards on Fed's Operation Twist 2.0 - RT Capital Account w/Lauren Lyster, June 20, 2012

Jim Rickards on the latest Federal Reserve Rate Decision and Operation Twist 2.0

http://youtu.be/FgngIN7CO1Q

Published on Jun 20, 2012 by CapitalAccount

Welcome to Capital Account. Let's twist again...like we did last September. The Federal Reserve announced today that it will be extending operation twist -- it's effort to twit the yield curve and keep long-term interest rates low by selling short-dated securities and buying long-term treasuries. It's just more free market arm-twisting, and the Fed says it's willing to do more. Sounds like more threats!

And whales have been popular, but what about "operation humpback whale..." What is this? Well, how 'about the Fed buy both the long, as well as the short end of the curve, and sell a bunch of the bonds in the middle? We'll float that idea to our guest Jim Rickards, later in the show. He believes that the same force behind too-big-to-fail banks that is driving anti-competitive behavior on Wall Street is also responsible for driving monopolistic practices in government.

And last but not least, there is Loose Change, and a story you won't want to miss: Mickey Mouse spotted on Mercury! That's right, but what does this intergalactic phenomenon have to do with market trends? Demetri and Lauren will give you their two cents at the end of our show!

Capital Account

Sign up for nightly vid of Capital Account. Very sharp gal, great guests, Libertarian producer...a half hour well worth it.

yup, Max Keiser and Abby Martin,

and Lauren Lyster are kicking ass on RT.

Lauren used to be quite statist before. but I think after two personal visits to the Davos, Switzerland Summits and finding out and experiencing first hand what a bunch of degenerate delusional control freaks international banksters and their corporatist lackeys were like, probably kinda turned her around.

She used to be an analyst on Wall St. so she's one of the few on TV who actually 'gets' how Wall St. works in reality, at least on a technical level. Plus, she's been leaning much more Austrian as of late.

But the show's producer Demetri Kofinas? Definitely heavily Austrian leaning.

In case you haven't had a chance, please check out Lew Rockwell interviewing Demetri Kofinas on how he got into studying Aurican School of Econ and ended up meeting and eventually producing the show with Lauren at RT:
