"Quantitative Easing will not help us one jot! If anything, it's going to stimulate uncontrolable inflation! ... It's just too risky. We've created the largest money pit in history and nothing can fill it!"

"But Ted. We have to wait and see. The market economy isn't dead. It just needs some shock therapy, that's all!"

"Perhaps you are right Frankie!"

"Sure I am! Can we hold the rest of the meeting inside the building now?"

The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this cartoon strip.
