locked up a mid the financial crisis. over time, the second goal was cents to boost the economy, by lowering interest rates. i think on both fronts, it has worked, without the feds stepping in, markets could have been even more strained, and according to a federal reserve study, qe, quantitate i have easing, we love to say, that lower interest rates on half percent t helped increase the economy, by three full percentage points. and it probably increased private payroll employment by 3 million jobs. >> that's of course great news. but also the plan did have its critics. what's the criticism there? >> well the big worry is that the plan actually artificially boosted stock prices. and the reason is very clear. because those interest rates were solo, investors were dis situated from investing in bonds, pour all of their money into the stock market. s&p 500 up 190% since the march 2009 lows. now, the program has also penalized savers. we talked about that so often.
