Qe – I for one didn’t think policy makers and the markets begging for them to do more of what has not work would get this far, but they have, sort of; “99% certainty” baked into the Bloomberg headline and 60% on another Qe from Reuters; for now, that trumps an awful US employment and growth scenario.
