The Fed has expanded its reciprocal currency agreements with foreign central banks in recent weeks to ensure they have a steady stream of short-term U.S. dollar funding as financial institutions in their markets unwind dollar-based assets This is part of an article in Bloomberg from oct 2008. Does this mean our Fed is helping other countries to get off the US dollar??????

The function of these deals is to help Euro banks who have a temporary shortage of dollars.

They are liquidity swaps, so in exchange the Fed gets foreign reserves, (Dollars for Euros), and the currency fluctuation risk is hedged. These deals are safe and don't put the Fed at risk. But they demonstrate how far the Fed is willing to go in the current environment to protect the global banking system.

Given the pro offshore manufacturing benefits and conditions instituted by the mewling congress, really what could The Bernanke do beyond printing more money? The Patent Office is compromised and few white collar crime laws are being enforced. The CFRtv has America by both ears and they are not going to let go. Tariffs and 'DUMP THE FED.
