Andrew Abraham

andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

Money Spent on TARP Almost Equals Total US GDP

tarp
The FED and the TARP program has lent or guaranteed almost $12.8 trillion if you add it all up. Putting this into perspective this massive sum is virtually approaching the total GDP or everything produced in the US last year. The nationג€™s gross domestic product was $14.2 trillion in 2008.This is a mind boggling thought. Put this into your collective conscious. This money lent,spent or guaranteed ( whatever you want to call it) amounts to $42,105 for every man, woman and child in the U.S. How many children do you know that make $42,105? Then put on top of this the fact there needs to be a debt service to be paid. In simple terms think of the interest payments needed to be paid yearly on the $42,105. Next fun fact the money lent,spent or guranteed ( whatever you want to call it) is 14 times the $899.8 billion of currency in circulation. Now we know why the printing presses have to start running.
Lets add another interesting fact, the money spent,lent or guaranteed has increased by 73 percent since November. How can this continue? Seems the Chinese have something to worry about. If you remember the Chinese came out and expressed concern on their investment of US Treasuries. Maybe I just do not understand and we do really need to spend all this money to get the economy going. I guess I really understand why it was so important to give bonuses at both AIG and Fannie and reward these key employees for incompetence.
Look at this table from Bloomberg on how the FED and TARP have so wisely used Taxpayers money
