I have one question for all of you expert economists, you know the ones who like to get their hands dirty in the technical details. If the Fed is printing money at 85B per month, isn't that a functional part of our national sovereign debt? In other words, isn't it a plausible notion to say if the debt ceiling isn't raised then the Fed can't take on any more debt? I realize that the Fed is an independent entity from the Treasury but the bonds are being sold with the faith and credit of the Treasury. Thoughts?
