Quantitiative easing QE

Tags

Quantitative easing (QE) is a monetary policy used by central banks to stimulate the economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective.

QE is aimed at stimulating economic activity, such as increasing consumer spending

One of the main tools they have to control growth is raising or lowering interest rates. Lower interest rates encourage people or companies to spend money, rather than save.
But when interest rates are almost at zero, central banks need to adopt different tactics – such as pumping money directly into the financial system.
This process is known as quantitative easing or QE.

Namitatsu (波達).  I think I own every designed shirt they’ve ever made. Roughly translated the Company name would mean: People of the Wave. Their motto (and label on most clothing items) is:

love about the motto though is the deeper meaning it conveys…it doesn’t have to directly apply to surfing per se, but to be active and in control; to wit: To be in charge of the path you take in life (i.e where you’ll surf on the wave-of-life and what path along it’s face you’ll take)

NO WAVE. NO LIFE

My counterfeit Thai Baht. King Rama V One Baht. 1908

Obverse head of the coin King Rama In military uniform. Reverse the mystical white Elephant Erawan. It is estimated that about 10,000 pieces were distributed, the remainder were probably melted.

The coins were distributed at the Royal Cremation of King Rama V with nobility of higher status being given the Royal Gift of the two coin case and nobility of lower status or public servants receiving the various single coin cases.

Nickname “Rein Nuat” -meaning moustache coin  was designed by the French coin engraver, Sir Henri-Auguste Patey   A.PATEY on the right-hand side  just above King Rama V’s left shoulder at 4 o’clock. As you can see in the illustration, the counterfeit example (on top) has much thinner, sharper lettering than the authentic example. In addition, the P in PATEY is reversed on this counterfeit coin although this may not necessarily be the case on all counterfeit examples.

‘จุฬาลงกรณ์ สยามินทร์’, which translates to ‘Chulalongkorn, King of Siam’

Erawan is seal of Bangkok . ‘’หนึ่ง  บาท’ for ‘one baht’, ‘สองสลึง’ for ‘two saleung’ or ‘หนึ่งสลึง’ for ‘one saleung’. On the top-left it is written ‘สยามรัฐ’ meaning ‘Siam’ and on the top-right the date is written, ’ร.ศ. ๑๒๗’ for the 127th year of the Rattanakosin Kingdom (1908), ’ร.ศ. ๑๒๗’ for the 128th year (1909) or ‘ร.ศ. ๑๒๙’ for the 129th year (1910).

The One Baht coin is 30 mm in size, weighs 15 grams and was struck from 90% silver and 10% copper.
