    I Don't Think You Proud White Trash Know What Quantitative Easing Is!,..

     

    Quantitative easing (QE) is an unconventional monetary policy used by central banks to stimulate the national economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective.[1][2] A central bank implements quantitative easing by buying financial assets from commercial banks and other private institutions, thus creating money and injecting a pre-determined quantity of money into the economy. This is distinguished from the more usual policy of buying or selling government bonds to change money supply, in order to keep market interest rates at a specified target value.[3][4][5][6]
    Expansionary monetary policy typically involves the central bank buying short-term government bonds in order to lower short-term market interest rates.[7][8][9][10] However, when short-term interest rates are either at, or close to, zero, normal monetary policy can no longer lower interest rates. Quantitative easing may then be used by the monetary authorities to further stimulate the economy by purchasing assets of longer maturity than only short-term government bonds, and thereby lowering longer-term interest rates further out on the yield curve.[11][12] Quantitative easing raises the prices of the financial assets bought, which lowers their yield.[13]
    Quantitative easing can be used to help ensure that inflation does not fall below target.[6] Risks include the policy being more effective than intended in acting against deflation – leading to higher inflation,[14] or of not being effective enough if banks do not lend out the additional reserves.[15] According to the IMF and various other economists, quantitative easing undertaken since the global financial crisis has mitigated the adverse effects of the crisis

    • QE is destroying capitalism and those capitalist societies.
      This money bubble will end in a big, big bang to the downside for the stock market. But that will pave the way for recovery in the real economy. For the root cause of the problem--concentration of wealth and income--will be solved by the stock market crashing to levels that return to long term mean.
