In this episode, we talk about Quantitative Easing in Washington’s “Capitol Hill Baby-sitting Co-op.” Then we talk about Quantitative Easing by the Federal Reserve.
Yes, it may sound a bit boring and technical. But we reckon that QE has had far more devastating socio-political consequences than most people realise.
Finally, we talk about the Fed unwinding its balance sheet. And our hope that it will be as boring as “watching paint dry”.
PS: sorry for the long hiatus. We kept having to re-record this episode due to our test audience getting very confused. We hope we’ve (finally) managed to fix that.
