One Response to “Has QE Been Effective?”

  1. DeDude says:

    I think there is a flaw in the premise that 10-year treasures should deviate from other countries bonds in order for QE to be “effective”. These bonds are linked at the hip so they are expected to be going up and down together. The “effectiveness” of QE is whether it manages to bring down rates (to give indebted costumers and businesses a brake). Data seems to suggest that it did unless you would argue that the reductions were due to something these other countries did that dragged US with them.
