“Quantitative easing is preventing a badly needed economic restructuring that would enable the US economy to actually grow. Instead, what we’re doing is pretending there’s growth by inflating bubbles in assets – we’ve got a stock market bubble, we’ve got a real estate bubble – and now we can take that phony wealth and turn it into consumption through debt. That’s what’s going on, but it’s not legitimate economic growth, but you can’t confuse the two. This is all phony.”
Peter begins speaking at 4:17
“The central banks are trying to get everyone to irrationally fear a good thing – falling consumer prices – so that they can create inflation and we won’t complain about it. But the real reason they need inflation is to wipe out all of their debt and to sustain all of these phony bubble economies they’ve inflated.”
