I now have an interview with the creator of the video up. You can see it here.

Also see my posts Why is deflation bad? and Economic Code Words or Michael Hudson’s view if you want different in-depth views of what the Fed is up to. More technical analyses are available under the tag ‘Quantitative Easing‘.
