Quantitative Easing for dummies

by Isabel Mateo

Lately, we have been hearing a lot about quantitative easing (QE) in the media. However, as this is a rather specialized topic, most people, even some economic press readers, do not have a clear notion of what QE is. That is why my friend Grega invited me to write this post for his blog. He said he needed someone to explain QE for dummies. Thus, I did not have to worry about a title anymore!

Evropski pregled – Prihodnost evra prek Frankfurta in Aten

Pretekli teden sta novice najbolj zaznamovala dva dogodka – napoved začetka odkupovanja obveznic posameznih držav članic s strani Evropske centralne banke in današnje volitve v Grčiji. Oba dogodka sta tako ali drugače pomembna za prihodnost evra in tudi Evropske unije kot celote. Mediji prav tako niso mogli mimo srečanja ministrov za zunanje zadeve, ki so razpravljali tudi o ukrepih za boj proti terorističnim grožnjam. Za konec pa tudi o včerajšnjem poročanju nekaterih slovenskih medijev o novi lestvici “pridnosti” naših poslancev.
