Fed Money Printing isn’t Free

Be Careful What QE You Wish For #2467: Gas Prices Surging Again | ZeroHedge.

Once the stock and commodities markets get the idea that more cheap money is coming, they rise. This is excellent news people with large stock portfolios or oil companies, but it is bad news for everyone else.
Rising energy prices take a bite out of consumers’ wallets decreasing consumption in other goods.

High stock prices also hurt most Americans. How can this be? Well, if you need to invest your present earnings to save for retirement, then the high prices that you are paying today will eat into your returns tomorrow.

The markets are a zero-sum game. Fed money-printing helps keep the rich and powerful, rich and powerful, at the expense of everyone else.
