Who says we all QEers now - sounds queer to me.

2:01    We Are All QEers Now by Cam Hui

"Richard Nixon famously said in 1971 that we are all Keynesians now. Within a decade, the unintended effects of Keynesian stimulus were plain to see for everyone as inflation raced upwards and out of control.

Today, as the world holds its breath for the results of the ECB's LTRO2 auction later in the week, we are all Quantitative Easers. The Bank of Japan, Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank and Bank of England have all embraced quantitative easing, or money printing. Recently, both the BoE and BoJ have announced further rounds of quantitative easing."

Not all of agree Mr. Hui.
