When COVID-19 struck, the Federal Reserve stepped in to try to avert economic crisis. As the country’s central bank continues to pump billions of dollars into the financial system daily, who is benefiting and at what cost?
This journalism is made possible by viewers like you. Support your local PBS station here: www.pbs.org/donate.
FRONTLINE investigates “The Power of the Fed” - and how the central bank’s actions have played out over the years on Wall Street versus Main Street - in a gripping new documentary.
From the award-winning investigative team behind “Amazon Empire” and “The Facebook Dilemma,” the film traces how an experiment the Fed began after the 2008 crash has been dramatically changing the American economy - exploring criticisms that, while well-intentioned, the Fed’s efforts have contributed to wealth inequality, helped today’s financial world grow far removed from the real-world economy, and prompted fears of growing inflation and an impending crash.
The documentary is supported by The WNET Group’s Chasing the Dream, a public media initiative that examines poverty, justice and economic opportunity in America.
The correspondent is James Jacoby. The writers and producers are Anya Bourg and James Jacoby. The co-producer is Megan Robertson. The senior producer is Frank Koughan. The executive producer is Raney Aronson-Rath.

It's quite simple why rates are climbing with rising imports and falling exports, the FED is obviously to be blamed for banking crisis. Something will eventually break if they keep the quantitative tightening and higher interest rates. Is this really a good time to have some savings in stocks?

Planning for retirement, or even financial freedom, is a marathon and not a race, as the saying goes. Breaking your financial independence goals into small pieces can help you stay on track while making the process a little more manageable and hopefully a little less stressful. Even if you are starting small, the important thing is to start. The investment creates a safe haven for the future. Everyone needs it so you don't go bankrupt when you stop working

Well, no comment on rates yet but; prior to investing money in the market, financial planning is crucial. It's advisable to obtain professional advice when choosing the correct asset to invest your time and money in. Analysis is best carried out by or under the supervision of a professional because there is more to the market than just technicals and up-front fundamentals. Since seeking therapy, there has been a discernible improvement.

BERNIE SANDERS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE PRESIDENT NOW, If these crooks and idiots would give the money directly to the homeowners to pay their mortgages, that in turn they could make their payments to banks who would get the money anyways through the homeowners, that would save people from foreclosures keep their house, and inject money into economy ,but instead they gave the money to Banks (TOP) whom would not lend out the money, and foreclosed on homes anyways, what is wrong with this picture is trickled down economy what Senile Ronald Reagan economics never worked years ago. so people who did not need to money ion first place got more money. results tent cities. and inequality widened, mean time our deficit that our kids will end up paying got poorer, what part of this a good plan,? I am not economist, I would have known that it is a stupid plan, you want to help economy? they should have done what they are doing it today, give American people the money directly, they will pay off things buy more and economy will grow, and money always end up in the bank anyways as one spends seller puts it in the bank ,money keep circulating through the bank so they would have been fine, no matter what money always ends up in the bank, NO MATTER WHAT. so FK the Bank, think of the people , with the money FED printed they could have bought all the banks free and clear.

Can you imagine being 23 years old with a half million dollars of financial obligations? OTOH, maybe he's making a great bet that the future will always be bigger than the past. Who am I to tell him his life sucks? But it's all good as long as your monthly income exceeds your monthly debt payments. At least he says he wants to wait until upper 20s before having kids.

You might as well bring out the old tropes of “It’s a dog-eat-dog world“ and “Survival of the fittest“. There are millions of people in the working class who just do not have the aptitude to become creative with investment instruments. working class and low middle class workers have no extra money to invest. Many of them already are working two jobs. Your solution is to just work a third job or more overtime and work themselves into an early grave while the ultra rich have STOPPED “earning” and are living off low interest loans taken against their wealth. Part of their wealth is used to make sure that Congress leaves them alone except to enable them to increase their wealth through tax breaks and subsidies (neither of those earned) while at the same time keeping workers wages artificially low. Over-commoditization has contributed to even the basics required for existence becoming so costly for lower income workers that it keeps them desperate to stay in jobs that pay starvation wages. That’s not “asset maintenance”. That’s indentured servitude.

A few simple facts for viewers of this episode. 1) Forcing the interest rate to unrealistic low levels invariably leads to misallocation of resources, and 2), Monetary inflation (raising the ratio of money in circulation to the supply of goods and services in the marketplace) invariably results in price inflation. Two basic laws of Economics that cannot be repealed.

I am a firm believer in the phrase, “follow the money”. The motivation of the Fed’s officials can be easily explained by this statement. Each of the Fed officials would end up leaving the Federal Reserve at some point and they would seek employment in the private sector. If these officials keep companies happy, then their prospect of million plus per year jobs goes drastically up. Otherwise, they would have a hard time getting employed in the private sector.

Amazing documentary. Well presented and super clear. I regret that my favourite economist El Eryane didn't have more time. He's the one that was screaming about the inflation issue when FED and all other stakeholders were talking about "transitory" infltion. In March 2022, finally the FED acknowledged that the inflation is a real issue and it has to move by reducing the balance sheet and increasing the interest rates. But by acting so late, the possibility of a soft landing became more and more complicated. Regarding the markets, any sound economist would tell you that it's impossible in a finite world to have asset price go up forever. Correction are painful but these are an important moment to deflate astronomical valuations. Next months are going to be very tough...

This documentary falls short. It implies that we need to maintain this precarious balancing act to avoid disaster. It already IS a disaster, and their slow, cautious approach is only prolonging the financial agony people are currently suffering through. My parents built a nice house in 1965 for just $25,000. According to Zillow, that now 58 year-old house is worth over $600,000. Nice houses like that would STILL be that affordable today, had congress and the FED agreed back then to keep the supply of money BALANCED with the supply of houses. When you inflate the money supply BEYOND the rate of production, you get inflated prices. Too much money bidding up the price of too few houses. That equation applies to ALL products and services. But the price of housing has the BIGGEST impact on everyone's financial stability, so they should primarily focus on that. If they notice the price of homes going up, they should ALWAYS reduce the money supply to deflate those prices back to their original level. The prices of homes are WAY too high today. Too many people can't afford them. They SHOULD crash the economy. They should dramatically shrink the money supply to deflate those prices. Yes, it would cause a lot of unemployment for the next few years, and many people would have to live in their cars. But houses would finally become affordable for the paycheck-to-paycheck crowd during the recovery. It's the ONLY way they will ever achieve financial stability. They'll just have to bite the bullet. No pain, no gain. Congress recklessly expands the money supply to make the instant gratification crowd happy. This detestable paradigm MUST END. Congressmen should EARN their votes, not BUY them.

@Jaques Studly crypto is a blatant attempt by some wealthy folks to monopolize markets with scrip they control utterly. With crypto, you might not trust the us government, but do you really trust the likes of Elon musk? To control a currency which would be you life blood, honestly? The history is scrip currency is a sad sad thing. Scrip, setting aside the negative behaviors of those that created the idea back in the gilded age, is a bit like gold in that demand for the object itself and lack of supply, can and does cause major market disruption. Look up the history of soft and hard peg currencies and the imf for a good primer. I don’t want to ruin the feds games, so I’m not going to get to deep into what they are doing here. It’s not quite what you think, but you wouldn’t support it if you didn’t really understand it. It comes from the problem of the fallacy of starting points (this is one I created). Literally, people misunderstand distances and relativity if they are at the starting point or end point, but if they are shown it without association, they are much more likely to correctly see the answer. So, my new logical fallacy works like this: people misconstrue where they are for either a starting point or end point no matter what. You n the way, they can be convinced that they are gaining momentum from here, when most often they are already in transit. More ore less people think here is static. Wherever their ownership of here is.

Frontline is a national treasure. They are one of the few avenues the public has to understand what is going on in the nation. In this case, they clearly illustrate how Wall Street benefited tremendously from QE and how the general public did not. The big banks and investment houses raked it in. While the public got to go further in debt and fall further behind in terms of wealth. The kicker is that the people in charge of all this knew what was happening and didn't lift a finger to stop or amend the dynamic.

Anyone with a tiny understanding of economics knows that the trickle down fiasco didn't work in the past and it would obviously fail again in their false "attempt" to help the American people. The Fed, and Wall Stree,t and Government work incessantly to benefit themselves. It's insulting to hear this so called financial "experts" talk about their "good" intentions and their naivety about what would really happen as if they were born yesterday. They're all unscrupulous liars, deeply corrupt, and terrible actors. They're in for a rude awakening if they believe they will continue to fool the American people and insulting our intelligence.

I am not economist, I would have known that it is a stupid plan, you want to help economy? they should have done what they are doing it today, give American people the money directly, they will pay off things buy more and economy will grow, and money always end up in the bank anyways as one spends seller puts it in the bank ,money keep circulating through the bank so they would have been fine, no matter what money always ends up in the bank, NO MATTER WHAT. so FK the Bank, think of the people , with the money FED printed they could have bought all the banks free and clear.

Let me save you some time: low interest rates are associated with an economic boom; higher interest rates are associated with economic contraction. Every major crisis in recent memory has resulted from the FED lowering interest rates, building up a huge amount of leverage in the system, and then raising interest rates, making that debt unserviceable, and then the economy consequently implodes. The FED is the biggest threat to financial stability in the world.

@@guillotinepod9988 and why were they foreclosed on exactly....you left that part out. See here's the issue, no one ever owns a home, you can pay it off all you want, and if you miss a tax payment they can take it, meaning you never really own it. Your in laws had a 30 year mortgage like fools, people who get them never expect anything to go wrong, and I not a republican or Democrat, yet it's that thinking that had them lose there home. Perhaps if they were putting that 20 years or mortgage and interest into a business they wouldn't have had that happen. Were you able to give them the money to buy a new home.....no...you absolutely didn't help them, now get back to work.

Technically, it’s sort of a wholesale form of money provided to the banks. If the banks don’t lend it out, it doesn’t really do much of anything. The banks are already being very careful about lending. If they get more careful, no amount of QE will prop up the economy.

Saying QE is money printing isn’t a good way to explain it. QE doesn’t inherently go into the real economy. Fed has to have help from the govt or private banks. Fed can’t print alone. The Fed isn’t sending out transfer payments or buying up consumer goods. It’s helping prop up financial assets and create bubbles which is also ultimately deflationary when they pop (unless govt can spend to create enough inflation to keep the bubble from crashing in nominal terms)

Quantitative Easing (QE) seems to be a Japanese innovation from 90’s. The phrase quantitative easing was invented by economist Richard Werne. But this is still just an excessive money printing by central banks. And excessive money printing always has severe consequences! Usualy high inflation and devaluation of the currency.

Stop giving our children Ritalin. They are giving our children Ritalin and that's where it starts, I'm talking about they are giving 15 months old babies Ritalin and they're giving Ritalin to children in school therefore they end up on the streets of the United States of America...stop this madness of big Pharma. It's a form of control and controlling the people by drugging them up. We are all basically incarcerated without bars. It's big corp capitalizing on us all in every level. Look what they are teaching our kids in school. Pull them out, start your own schools. There should be a home school parent that will teach your child. Listen: One woman took prayer out of our school, it's time to fight back and recall ever politician who is doing wrong. Please excuse the subject matter is not what this video's about but I'm desperately trying to get people's attention. They are going to start a war and or many wars just to try to mask what they are really trying to hide. We need to make these leaders that want to start a war to have an old fashioned Duo and arm themselves up with stuff and hash it out themselves. Enough senseless wars. People must know! Please read until the end. Covid-19 causes thrombosis that is a known fact you lying spinster news. I'm a taxi driver and I was exposed to covid many times and when I couldn't breathe due to my blood getting thick (thrombosis-coagulating of the blood) I took aspirin and I could breathe soon there after. I took either 5 to 8 baby Aspirins (81mg or 2 Aspirins 325mg) and again in the evening when I couldn't breathe again...it's saved my life thank God, by my curiosity as a child, I know about health but far from a doctor so what are the doctors not doing that people keep expiring? It's shameful and Hospitals need to be charged with gross negligence for not helping the people with covid due to the history of Medicine like ivermectin being used in the past but all of a sudden not being allowed to be used to save life of covid patients. I'm telling you all that there's something wrong and nurses and doctors need to speak out bcz their is a God. Listen to me, a lady came in my cab and told me that her old uncle went to the hospital for old people arches and pain and a nurse came up to him and asked him what's he was coming to the hospital for and he told her and she told him that he'd better leave because people like him are coming in and they're not coming out because they are saying that they have covid... The thanked her and left quickly. It's is so important people spread this news around the world please because this is what's going on. WAKE UP WORLD! This is a money move for the wealthy... This is why the news isn't reporting the TRUTH. The news people all sign nondisclosure form to shut them up. There's a narrative behind covid and masking the truth. As you may or may not know, I'm a taxi driver and I've had countless of people telling me that they believe their loved ones didn't have covid but they intubated their loved ones and they died of covid anyways. That's is one of the reasons they intubate so they can't talk and they deeply sedate everyone so they can't communicate. Many people told me that they asked the doctor's to stop sedating their loved ones so they can talk with them and so they can write something on paper because they did not go in the hospital because they felt sick with covid or flu like symptoms...they went in the hospital with things like bladder infection or other issues. Look this is hard for me to share but it now has affected my family...one of my family members got beat up in a bar and long story short, they intubated him, they heavily sedated him and my whole family was shocked after seeing him because he just got beat up, he didn't get hit by a truck but yet they intubated him and heavily sedated him, he was saying he wanted to go home because he was shackled like an inmate and it upset my cousin after he woke up from being knocked out. They said he was being combative so they gave him something to calm him down and he had a stroke...so they then intubated him (I told my cousin to take him out of that hospital bcz they were going to do to him what they've done to my rider's family members. My cousin didn't get moved out of that hospital and he went downhill from there. He's now gone. I'm sure my cousin was shocked 😲😳 after they shoved the intubation tube's down his throat and was heavily sedated...and he couldn't do anything about what the hospital did to him, trust me...I feel it in my bones. This is why Hispanics and African-American Americans are the ones that are at high risks and they have to do in some other nationalities by default otherwise people would be on to them. I do believe they harmed my cousin, this is why they are censoring all of us on every platform so we won't be able to tell everyone what's really going on. On 2 different occasions 2 rider's in my cab told me that their loved one's were old and in a rest home and both of their loved one's were told VIA VIDEO CHAT that their loved ones were going to die of covid (at the time they were not allowed to see them due to the covid shutdowns) but in both cases their loved ones told them that they didn't feel sick "at all" and in both case's the nurse told the family that they "were" sick and tested positive for cov and the nurse told them after they would pass away that they were going to cremate them despite their religious beliefs. In these two cases their family members told me that they believed their family members did not have covid. One lady told me she just cried and said she bid her farewells to her mother and she died within a week but the other woman told me that she read the rest home "the riot act" and told them that her mother was not sick and that she better not die and that they better not cremate her and if she did died that she will go there with her attorney and the news reporters and her mother actually ended up not dying. She pulled her out of that rest home and she told me that she found a rest home where they hadn't had any covid deaths. Someone who has money needs to do an intensive investigation because I believe that this is going on all over the world. I was trying as hard as I could to tell everyone what I knew while driving taxi and what people are telling me. When the news was reporting that the hospitals where full with covid patients, they weren't, they were like Ghost town's...I was seeing it with my own eye's while dropping off nurses to work. I would asked the nurses and doctors and they would tell me the same...I knew something was wrong. I don't believe the death toll with covid and doctor's like Dr. Scott Jensen who also is a senator from Minnesota has videos on KZfaq about it. I believe they are Victimizing us all around the world and will continue to do so if we don't spread the word. Never have and never will believe the lying narrative the news is spewing..they are doing something to people. My cousin could have gone to 3 different hospitals that were closer than Stanford and the ambulance 🚑 took him there...why? I smell a stinky, fat, rotten fish. Why are the medical facilities getting money for covid deaths, why are there incentives for hospitals and medical facilities for covid deaths? Why are the hospitals heavily sedating people. Why are they having these shutdowns and why do they not allow people to see their loved ones? Why are they intubating people when that doesn't help the thrombosis because thrombosis is a coagulation in the blood issue, therefore people are not getting the oxygen in any part of their organs/body and that's why they can't breathe. The hospitals are NOT dealing with the coagulation FACTOR by using things that work as in ivermectin. That's why doctor's have been threatened by the medical board. This is like the REAL ESTATE BOOMS in the past but now the wealthy are using this vaccine to make money, that's why they want to make a 1 world government so that the wealthier countries fund with our tax dollars the expensive vaccines, that aren't proven to work. They are saying that the people who are dying are the ones that aren't vaccinated and it's the other way around. My two best friends were both vaccinated and both ended up in the hospital after being vaccinated and they my friend father passed and now he has lung issues and he got vaccinated....so what's the use? Where's the benefit? I'm am a 62 years old cancer survivor, taxi driver and when I couldn't breathe countless of times, I took Aspirins and minute's later I could breathe. When it happened in the evening I took Aspirins again and I could breathe. Something wrong with what's going on. I believe they are intubate so their patients can't talk and they heavily sedating people so they can not write anything to their loved ones. People tell me that Hospitals are not letting people know where their loved ones are. There should be a data base where anyone who is being taken to a hospital facility for anything must be put in this data base. Please everyone this is what people are telling me 🥺. Someone could go in the hospital for anything and they are expiring with covid. I've been hearing this from many people for MONTHS, now it has effected me personally and I don't want the same thing to happen to you. Please take a screenshot of my message because they are being taken down or the algorithm is not allowing my message to be seen by many due to the content of what I write. Please pass it on to protest videos and videos of covid and what's happening with covid in all parts of the world...people have to know the scam. People MUST KNOW. Listen the water are full in the pyramid dam is full in the grapevine and they are holding back waters so other places will be a drought, trust me...go look for yourself. The wealthy are going to try and starve us out.

His point was regarding borrowing. When interest rates are low it benefits both the rich and the poor but it’s meant to help the poor. This is because they can borrow at lower interest rates. So when lower income families take out loans for cars, homes, & education, they can do so cheaper saving them money. On the other hand banks get slaughtered during a falling rate environment because their credit spreads tighten. It is for this reason as to why every time the Fed announces a rate hike bank stocks pop because their spreads expand. So basically he was trying to say lowering rates helps the poor because it lowers the cost of borrowing which it does. However, this also allows savvy corporations and investors to take out cheap debt to grow their assets. There is no-free lunch in markets so when there is an action there will inevitably be a downside. And in this case the downside is income inequality because the rich have the spare cash to buy appreciating assets (houses/ stocks) while the poor can only buy depreciating assets (cars). While the fed is not perfect the claim that it only looks out for the rich is bs. If there is not the poor to buy the goods that make the rich rich than the rich would them too become poor meaning depression. Therefore, it is the objective of the Fed to maximize employment for that reason as there is no good way to benefit one class without hurting the other despite what others in the comment sections may say.

@@007supertime Injecting money directly to people only solves a very short term problem... in the long term it would cause massive inflation/hyperinflation. What if recent homeowners barely qualified and then all of a sudden the Fed pays for their home loan. What's going to happen? Dollar devalues, the new homeowners, house prices massively inflate and kicks any possibility of future generations of owning a home. Demand for real commodities ramps all the way up. Problem is too big. The only way out is a brutal economic collapse with no bailouts and get rid of the Fed/financial sector. Would have to come back to REAL economic growth with an emphasis on SAVING, not credit.

Quantitative easing increases the financial asset prices, and according to Fed's data, the top 5% own upto 60% of the country's individually held financial assets. This includes 82% of the stocks and upto 90% of the bonds. So, any QE action by Federal Reserve will only really help the rich not the rest of America.

You're correct. I just found out that inflation basically means there are more dollars out there competing for less goods. Which would explain the high cost of buying a home and renting a place to live. So, assets inflate and make the rich richer while the rest are priced out of ever attaining those assets. Priced out of food, even.

@@rohitkhosla8110 Well, yeah, because the financial class has a sort of mafia style "roof" over us, the regular folks always end up paying for their damages. They can screw up everything and destroy themselves and it's literally, at the same time, in regular people's interests and, to regular people's detriment that they in the financial sector get put on life support and revived. This is because they have a sort of tentacle strangle hold on the regular Americans. A "roof" is sort of like when some guys keep destroying some store owners business, and then some guys with suits come in and say "hey we heard what happened to your store, you know, we can make sure you're protected, for a little fee". And both the first and second group of guys were both the same group. It's a forced "protection" racket, where they don't get hurt but you might if you don't pay them. That's essentially one form of "roof", this shit the financial class gots regular Americans under is just an extremely sophisticated, ingrained and institutionalized roof.

In reality under their incompetent and deceiptful practices they have created the crashes in 1921, the GREAT DEPRESSION from 29-39, BLACK MONDAY in 1987. The recessions in 53, 57, 69, 75, 81 and what is happening now. Congress voted them in 109 years ago. Congress needs to vote them out
