87. Can rates...
be cut from 0%? I am not a math genius but I do grasp negative numbers. That is all fine and dandy when you are talking physics and philosophy, but economics is about the real and tangible. This is like the IRS trying to tax fantasy gaming money on the internet.

It seems that the line between virtual and reality are starting to blur. Unless you are on a specific Native American vision quest, I tend to think you might be crazy if you espouse negative rates or anything even close.

This would tend to explain Bernanke's monetary policy though. :eyes:
