My take; of course the withdrawal symptoms are going to lessen when you give the addict more drug.

That druggie fix didn't last very long.

Pretty apt, and a modern phrasing of F.v.Hayek. I can't remember the exact words, but there is a line in the Road to Serfdom about how each attempt by a central bank to cure a financial crisis by the expansion of credit only makes the final reckoning worse.

Albert Edwards, global strategist at Société Générale, said Washington's serial bail-outs are the inevitable result of the credit bubble of preceding years. "This was all baked in the cake long ago. What we have seen so far is just a dress rehearsal for the deep recession that is coming. America is going to be losing 500,000 jobs a months. That is when we will see interest rates go to zero. The deficit will be covered with printed money as it was in Japan. The endgame will be helicopters full of cash dropped by Ben Bernanke," he said.

This the same guy who is calling for S&P to fall to 500.
