Read_610 – The Invisible Cost of War – Part 2 [Alex Gladstein]

“In sum, the U.S. government has shown that — through the GFC, repo spike crisis in 2019 and pandemic crisis in 2020 — it is willing to do anything to keep interest rates down: start an experimental QE program to buy long-dated treasuries and subprime mortgages; nationalize the repo markets; and even nationalize the corporate debt markets.” – Alex Gladstein

Today we conclude Alex Gladstein’s incredible new article on the invisible costs of war, and how our monetary policy disconnects the unbelievable cost of war & its fallout, from the minds of the citizens.
