    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Not that I am an economist, but.....

    I like this explanation better.

    Now you have 2 perspectives to form an opinion on.

    And then there is the quantative easing to what degree issue to consider. (a little bit of quantative easing will versus a whole lot of quantative easing)

    Also there is to consider that you can also do the thing in reverse (quantative tightening?).
    - By selling assets to the banks.
    - By selling treasuries.
    - By increasing lending rates for banks.
    (In case the dollar devalues too much, which in itself is a to what degree question.)

    Just to complicate things a bit.
