If properly used, QE could have worked and still can if redirected to where it's needed. It's not and won't be. For nearly five years, credit went for speculation, big salaries and bonuses. It hasn't been for the economy to stimulate growth and create jobs.
Financial warfare rages. America and other societies are affected. Ordinary people are hurt most. Hard times keep getting harder.
Since September 2007, the Fed cut interest rates from 5.25 to .25%. Surviving investment banks became commercial ones to get free money unavailable to ordinary folks.

It handed Citigroup $280 billion for its liabilities and $140 billion for Bank of America's.
