Mr Bernanke and Mr Trichet,
Please read this:
Your Rate Cuts & Cash Injections
do no longer reach the real economy ! !

We now hear almost every day that banks will not lend to each other, or will do so only at punitive interest rates. Credit spreads -- the difference between the government cost to borrow and what private-sector borrowers must pay -- are at historic highs. Ms. Anna Schwartz, co-author with Milton Friedman of "A Monetary History of the United States" explains that this is not due to a lack of money available to lend,  but to a lack of faith in the ability of borrowers to repay their debts.

"The Fed has gone about as if the problem is a shortage of liquidity. That is not the basic problem. The basic problem for the markets is the uncertainty if the balance sheets of financial firms are credible."   Ms. Schwartz here provides the evidence how to restore interbank trust and how to avoid the present financial crisis from develloping in a full blown depression.

Baltic Dry Index (BDI)

The BDI averages prices for chartering commodity cargo. As demand for shipping cargo directly varies with the commodity trading volume and the supply of cargo capacity is highly inelastic in the short run, the BDI is generally seen as an excellent and highly sensitive leading indicator
of economic activity and growth
