Quantitative Easing

A form of monetary policy where a Central Bank creates new money electronically to buy government bonds or other financial securities from commercial banks. This process aims to directly increase banks to lend and provide liquidity to the economy. This is done in the hopes to lower short-term interest rates, increases the money supply and increase inflation slightly.
