To support housholds “good morale” as per popular saying, FED is buying stocks in an open market. Majority of savings in USA are in capital markets, thus during any crisis its worth to support the market to keep good mood (and consumption) healthy. Consumption makes up to 70% of US GDP.

For as long as FED would think market and consumers need some support. Pls be reminded elections are coming and Prez Trump praises himself for all time market highs despite c19.

But at what stage does quantitative easing and market manipulation kick price inflation into a higher gear that precludes fiddling with the money supply and "free market" ? Is that a known unknown? Also I wonder if it's such a good thing for growth, why don't they kick it up to the highest possible level, even before covid crisis? Very hard to understand this voodooesque economics

Some quotes first: 1. Activist investor Jeff Ubben has left ValueAct Capital, the $16bn hedge fund he founded, to launch a new environmental and social impact investment company. 2. „Companies, as governed today, with investors asking for more current returns and more buybacks and so forth, aren’t working for society or nature,“ he said. „But I have to prove that there’s a return [in long-term impact], because otherwise . . . you’re not really changing anything.“ <..> „Finance is, like, done. Everybody’s bought everybody else with low-cost debt. Everybody’s maximised their margin. They’ve bought all their shares back . . . There’s nothing there. Every industry has about three players.“ 3. Having an impact fund and a traditional fund under the same roof at ValueAct was „confusing“ for investors, Mr Ubben said. Those who opted for the impact vehicle worried they were leaving returns on the table, and those who opted for the flagship fund worried that about being portrayed as environmentally or socially „unconscious“. „I don’t think these two strategies peacefully coexist,“ said Mr Ubben. Second, that was the essence. If RE investments are driven by "location", "location", "location" mantra, then in "ordinary" investing it is not only "return", "return", “return" anymore. I have been following for the last few years already an emerging and quite fast growing trend in hedge funds space to invest if not "for" then at last "with" social and/or environmental impact in mind. And that will benefit all of us. Even those who are far away from investing. https://www.barrons.com/articles/activist-investor-jeff-ubben-departs-valueact-to-focus-on-esg-51592936937
