Understand Money

Monetary Policy is the US government’s most powerful economic policy tool. The Fed is currently creating $120 billion a month and pumping it into the financial markets. That explains why stock prices are so high and why interest rates are so low.

Do you understand how Monetary Policy works? Watch these nine Macro Watch videos and you will.

QE Is Debt Cancellation
When a central bank prints money and buys a government bond, it is the same thing as cancelling that bond (so long as the central bank does not sell that bond back to the public). This means the governments have far less debt than is generally understood. It also has very important implications for policy. Governments could spend more to restructure the economy, end the global economic crisis and reverse the decline in the middle class standard of living.
