The FED is not ready to taper. All bank and other financial institutions were making cases that the FED was going to taper and they didn’t. Before the FED tapers the US government needs to continue with the propaganda that the economy is getting better, they will do this until all Americans believe it. Then they need to start the war, confiscate the guns, and control the internet. Once all of this has been completed they will be able to create the event that will collapse the economy.
