The reason why I am prefacing and planning to re-post my September 16th, 2011’s original post is because, I believe today …it has become more pertinent today than ever before.
After the French Presidential Election, I am more convinced than ever Americans are being strung along …day after day …more than merely paying the costs to just tote the note …those service costs associated with America’s Public Debt.
Last year, I attempted to characterize this in other terms by referring to this cost in a way which explains the service costs called the “Debt Loadâ€ as …and in terms of “The Fate of the Rate …â€ as being actually “…the Cost of the Lost.â€
The Fate comprises the lost factors of time and money in various unforeseen or unnoticed dimensions with respect to the added dynamics of various depths of rates whose limits are limited by finite time constructs.
Enough said for the time being; the Treasury Department holds a periodic recurring series of Treasury sales whose calendar period repeats over and over nearly every two months …just like clock work …come rain or shine …regardless of supply and whoever shows up to participate in these garage-sale-like auctions.
Aside from organic market dynamics, as deemed necessary, QE1 and QE-2 has filled the vacuum in the event and at the ever increasing times of waning participation …I.E.; a lack of demand …as if to beg the question; what if they gave an auction and no one showed?
