Skate shoes represent the latest evolution in footwear for youth. The first shoes to become a fad were Converse All-Stars or Chucks. Originally boys basketball shoes, they became street wear in the 50's. They re-emerged in the 60's and in each youth generation since. They became the first skateboard shoe, then Vans (old school) emerged in the late 60's. Nike became popular youth shoes in the 80's and dominated the youth culture until the advent of serious extreme sport skateboarding (new school). As skateboarding became mainstream and see as an extreme sport skate shoes have dominated youth footwear. Such names as DC, ES, DVS, Etnies, Osiris, Adio, Ipath, have competed heavily in style, grip, color scheme, and functionality. The youth cult embraces extreme sports and their leaders, as Shaun White, Tony Hawk, Ryan Sheckler, and others.
Dude, those are the coolest skate shoes I have ever seen, can I have 'em.

Helicopter Ben is a coined name for Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. The origin of this "nickname" stems from statements made by the Chairman in regards to a hypothetical monetary crisis. He basically indicated that if there were a liquidity squeeze, he would direct helicopters to be flown around the country spewing out fistfuls of cash to the populous.
Don't worry about a recession, Helicopter Ben will save us.

The means by which entities, as government agencies, as the Federal Reserve, Department of the Treasury, and institutions as the central bank, control the supply of money (M1, M3). This process includes trading in foreign exchange markets.

Monetary policy can but viewed in its two forms: expansionary and contractionary. Expansionary policy increases the total money supply (liquidity) and is used to fight unemployment or recessionary pressures, mainly by lowering interest rates. Direct cash infusions to struggling private institutions or government rebates to individuals can be used as emergency measures to avoid panic runs on banks as was seen in the 1929 market crash. These measures are very dangerous and are considered highly inflationary and destabilizing to currency exchange rates. Economic theory would indicate that such uncontrolled printing of money, indicates failure of fiscal policy (which refers to government borrowing, spending, and taxation).

Contractionary policy is used to control inflation by raising interest rates. A "perfect storm" scenario would be when a government "should be" using a contractionary policy and resorts to an expansionary policy.
The world is very critical of the monetary policy of the United States and is punishing it by devaluing its currency.
