#2 I've got an idea. What if the Federal Reserve Board buys up all of the bad mortgages along with all failing business debt from all of the banks. As a pre-conditon, the banks will be instructed to buy US Treasury bonds from the money the Fed sends them.
The Fed can then bundle the mortgages as collarteral to buy foreign bonds and currency. That way, when the ship begins to sin, everybody goes down together and a new global monetary scheme is developed.

#4 for those of you against quantitative easing, just remember that if the Fed didn't do that there would be more pressure for another Stimulus or a new 'job core' or who knows what else
the good thing about quantitative easing is that it can be unwound much quicker than a fiscal action
