What is quantitative easing? (funny video)

I’d not seen these guys before, but they’re quite good. The Australian comedic duo of John Clarke (though he was born in New Zealand) and Bryan Dawe explain global economics on their YouTube page. In this video, they explain “quantitative easing” – the policy the US Federal Reserve, and the Brits, have been following to help fuel the economy for several years now.

Chris isn’t a big fan of quantitative easing. Neither is Joe Stiglitz.


I’ve never really understood what quantitative easing is, but these guys do a funny job of explaining it, briefly and painlessly.
