“US Government” fearing Treasury bond collapse, wants 401(k) funds to prop up their prices.

In yet another clear set up by the so called “US Government”, the US Treasury and Labor departments, as if it is their own idea, are looking to give Americans more “options” of how to invest their pension money. These “options” have a funny way of becoming the only choices when it comes to government policy. While it may not get to the point of mandating that everyone buy Treasuries, it is quite plausible that a market crash could be orchestrated that would force many pension plan investors to “flee to safety” of “US government” bonds and use their 401(k) fund to do that. The “US government” is clearly fearing an impending bonds crash and thus is exhibiting this extraordinary concernt for the citizens’ well being. One might wonder where was their concern when they have been inflating bubble after bubble for decades and eroding the value of those very savings that they are now telling us they want to protect. The main role of any government, especially “US Government”, is to pretend to fail in their duties. And when they “fail” the big money behind the poiticians, pocket hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of $$.

Consider this situation:

A man goes on a shooting spree on January 7th, 2010 in Missouri over a 401(k) dispute with his company (ABB electrical equipment plant), as has been widely reported in the first week of January, 2010.

Then on January 8th, 2010 it is reported by Businessweek magazine that:

The U.S. Treasury and Labor Departments will ask for public comment as soon as next week on ways to promote the conversion of 401(k) savings and Individual Retirement Accounts into annuities or other steady payment streams, according to Assistant Labor Secretary Phyllis C. Borzi and Deputy Assistant Treasury Secretary Mark Iwry, who are spearheading the effort.

Is it another coincidence? – after American public’s attention is being diverted from an unpopular Obama’s Health Reform Bill debate to “terror incident on Detroit-bound airliner from Amsterdam” discussions starting last week of December of 2009.

    The past of Japan’s two lost decades is telling us that Governments have the power to bid up their bonds and keep interest rates low, but Japan is really the only good example. And them too they had a growing world economy to which they could export and stay afloat, and they have not had to spend trillions on Defense. So may be US bonds will tumble sooner rather than later and interest rate spike will put an end to “US Government” as we know it and restore the Constitutional order.
