VIDEO: CanaData chief economist Carrick analyzes central bank bond buying practices
Earlier this month, the U.S. Federal Reserve decided to start buying an additional $40 billion per month in mortgage-backed bonds.
At the same time, Mario Draghi, head of the European Central Bank (ECB), says he will do whatever it takes to save the Euro. And that means buying the bonds of nations that are in financial distress.
In his latest video, Alex Carrick, Chief Economist of Reed Construction Data, analyzes the economic situation in both the United States and Europe, in the context of government austerity measures and an aging population.
