Q: What is your view on the never-before-experienced impact of so many global central banks pouring new money into the economy to keep rates low with the prayer of priming the growth pump? As a leading-edge boomer, I am forever leery about inflation. Perhaps it was that 11¾ percent mortgage I had years ago. Anyway, my educators left me convinced that printing money is a delicate thing, so I keep feeling like there is this other very large shoe out there, waiting to drop. What’s concerning is what might happen to those of us under the shoe. What was/apparently still is conceived as priming seems a lot to me like aiding and abetting medium-term performance across the developed world. Your thoughts?
