FED TOOLS, QE, DEFLATION…. Q&A with Lynette Zang and Eric Griffin (Video)
FED TOOLS, QE, DEFLATION…. Q&A with Lynette Zang and Eric Griffin Video for ITM Trading
Question 1. Marc T: you say the Fed is out of tools, but what about buying equities? Do you think they’re already doing that covertly? They also haven’t tried negative rates yet. If Japan and Europe are any indication, these “tools” could be used to kick the can down the road for a LONG time, right?
Question 2. Tony L: Bank of Japan has been QE(ing) for 30 years. Why couldn’t the rest of the world do the same?
Question 3. Art S: As part of the reset, do you see local or regional areas creating their own localized currencies?
Question 4. DK: Where does the QE money go?
Question 5. Stephen L: If Ms. Zang believes it’s hyperinflation leading to next crisis, then I am confused about her belief in the collapse of stocks and bonds, which is deflationary. In hyperinflation stocks shoot to moon, as money loses value people put that into stocks as one of the ways to preserve it. Look at Venezuela, its stock market is among best performing ones.
