This is going to be great for the banks. It’s going to be great for people whose personal finances are strong enough that they can re-mortgage — refinance their mortgages. But it’s not so great for the people who are in trouble.”

Freeland hit the nail on the head: Bernanke’s $600 billion largesse is yet another gift to the wealthy.
