    I think he missed the point of the fiscal policy question, but still he went a different direction and gave an interesting answer. More fiscal stimulus and less monetary stimulus would probably have been a better remedy over the past several years, but given the lack of fiscal stimulus, I’m not sure the Fed really did anything wrong. Maybe Bernanke has gone too far, but I don’t think the consequences will be drastic. Bernanke *is* a scholar of the 30s, and his greatest fear is not doing enough.

    To me, I agree what David Einhorn says! I see that we need more consumption because if there is no cosmsumption there is no sales because an ecomony to be stagnated, and making interest rates higher on savings and checking accounts can cause people to spend more!

    truly shocking: at 14:30 he mentions that the FED simply does NOT have the means to reign in QE as easily as they suggest. a vicious cycle indeed. talk about “messaging” at the FED. Nightmare.

    interesting: he says at 10:30 “there are VERY LEVERED players at THE CORE of the financial system who are dependent on the FED doing what it has promised to do”

    Easing monetary policy was compulsory (it was the only option)to save the US economy after the 2008 collapse, its what kept US recovering from the collapse. Now since the economy is expanding and consumption starting to increase fed has announce ceasing of its monetary easing.I think fed has did their job quite well, theres not much to argue about it.

    I think the Fed took his advice at 10:50 with the recent announcement.

    Lower rates does not mean more consumption, I also mean more investment due to low cost of Capital, and house hold or savers could move to investments which effect positively due to low interest rates.
