``Our economic structure certainly enjoys unmatched capacity to absorb Credit excess without engendering traditional consumer price inflation.  Yet there is indeed a huge problem that no one seems to want to recognize:  Our system also has an unprecedented capacity to expand Credit that is backed by little in the way of wealth-creating capacity.  Our government literally injects Trillions into the economy -- Credit that inflates incomes and sustains consumption and elevates asset prices.  The downside of this economic miracle is that, at the end of the day, there's little left to show for the whole exercise except for an ever-expanding mountain of suspect financial claims. ''
