3:17 pm
could create enough artificial money by itself and so the fed did did work together with the european central bank with the bank of england with the people's bank of china leader kind of separate story with the bank of japan and so forth to create enough money to put into the financial system to keep it safe for itself and ultimately what that did is a transferred all of that money into the banks into financial assets into burgeoning stock markets like like a ton of sort of crack into an attic up and up and never took it away and that meant someone else was going to pay on the other side and the people that paid on the other side was everyone else in.
