“Investors around the world are shocked, shocked that the monetary wizards may have run out of magic tricks to revive global economic growth”

“I hope we can all agree that once-in-a-century emergency measures are no  longer necessary five years into an economic recovery"

"Now we are in a completely different world”

“There were no fingerprints of an easy money policy in the marketplace”

“There are increasing signs quantitative easing has overstayed its welcome”

“We have to turn the page on the bubble-and-bust mentality that created this mess”

“Nobody understands gold prices and I don’t really pretend to understand them either”

Total World Debt Load at 313% of GDP WSJ

“Central banks gains and losses belong to society”

“There’s a lot of liquor out there now”

“The debt is in dollars. We can’t run out of cash. We print the stuff”

“We're on a threshold of a very serious, confrontational actions in the sphere that is known ... as currency wars”
Russian central banker Alexei Ulyukayev

“...if we do not see substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market, we will continue the MBS purchase program, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ our policy tools as appropriate until we do.”

“The underlying impact of the international financial crisis is far from over"

“We’re at the risk of overburdening the central banks. We keep applying what I call monetary Ritalin to the system. We all know there’s a risk of  over-prescribing.”

'For you ... anything.'

"I don't see total debt liability as long as I live”

“We're prepared to do more” 

The reason a bank run is so feared is because it could land every bank in the world in trouble -- even the healthiest ones

“Civilized people don’t buy gold”

“In my view, it’s not going to happen.  It’s a fantasy. Wall Street keeps dangling QE3 out there [but] I just don’t see it happening.” 
Fed Fisher

“We are not seeking higher inflation. We do not want higher inflation and we're not tolerating higher inflation”

“The crisis in Europe is more serious than the crash of 2008.”

“Without an agreement with the troika and further funding, Greece in March faces an immediate risk of an uncontrolled default" 

“There is no economy in the world, whether low-income countries, emerging markets, middle-income countries or super- advanced economies that will be immune to the crisis that we see not only unfolding, but escalating at a point where everybody would actually have to focus on what it can do”

“I simply do not know where the money is, or why the accounts have not been reconciled to date” 

“We could continue and keep kicking this can down the road, but I think the people of Jefferson County have had enough” 
Commissioner Joe Knight

“If you open up the Pandora’s box, then who is willing to invest in sovereign risk?”

"If there isn't a solution by Sunday, everything is going to collapse”

“We can borrow money for 10 years as the government of the United States because people have confidence in this country at less than 2 percent...The responsible path now is to take advantage of the unique position...”

Hildebrand StatementCentral Bank Chief Faces 'Big Gamble' WSJ

“We have a problem in this country with debt” and “if we don’t turn to the long run, we will be dealing with overnight crises for as far as the eye can see.”

“You're safe” 

“The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero probability of default.” 

“If I have to buy (Treasurys) at a zero percent yield, I will.  I don't like it, but we'll do it.“

“We can't simply cut our way to prosperity” 

"The debt level of the USA is disastrous"
