I apologize to you all in advance.

My understanding of economics is very basic.

I read the recent OP by White Tara:
"Opinion: The Federal Reserve is in stealth intervention mode" https://www.democraticunderground.com/111686841

It sounds as if a major disaster is about to hit us, but I don't understand enough about economics to even follow the Opinion piece author's argument. I tried looking up some of the terms used, but the whole thing is about as clear as mud to me.

Is anyone willing to offer a simpler explanation of what is going on and where the danger lies? Or can someone point me to a resource (hopefully not book length) that can explain what all of this means re: the current economy and the Fed?

All I've managed to glean from it so far is that the Fed is doing something in stealth mode to try to fend off a disaster.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regarding the Kurds. Just heard this on KGO's John Rothmann show.

Does anyone see a yellow color cast to this photo? Trying to reconcile what I see on my I-phone with what I see on the laptop.
