Since James Corbett’s Federal Reserve video “Century of Enslavement” got recently blacklisted on the ever-less-popular Youtube (i.e. doesn’t show up in “federal reserve” search results anymore), here’s a little clip of ex-Fed-Chairman Ben Bernanke being questioned by Bernie Sanders.
Ben Bernanke, nicknamed “Helicopter Ben”, was famous for his “Quantitative Easing” policies, which distributed huge amounts of thin-air money to “the economy”, whatever that means (my guess: it probably means banks and huge corps). Unfortunately, the debt incurred to the US-American tax payer weren’t that much “thin air”.
When asked which banks were benefactors of these trillions of taxpayer money, Bernanke flat out refuses. It’s too bad that Sanders didn’t keep up the pressure.
Addendum: Here’s some in-depth information on the subject by Investopedia: www.investopedia.com/terms/q/quantitative-easing.asp The amount given there is 4 trillion USD.
