Most investors want to see a lot more free money since that will drive up the market but the ones that are sitting on trillions in cash waiting for the market to crash so they can buy for literally pennies on the dollar are steaming. They are calling Bernanke clueless and they are giving dire warnings about hyper-inflation. They are predicting runaway government since Congress doesn’t need to pay its bills with Bernanke printing money.
These critics (who are really just shills for people holding USDs) point to Bernanke’s admission that he is really in uncharted territory when it comes to printing this much money (he didn‘t put in such plain English). Of course the Weimar Republic of Germany comes to mind, they added 12 zeros to the Mark in just three years.
As scary as hyper-inflation sounds the opposite or deflation is the wealth destroyer for us peasants. Deflation works great for the wealthy, especially if they are prepared for it in advance by accumulating trillions in cash. If you have a mortgage or other debt, making your payments after a round of deflation has devastated the economy then becomes impossible and you find out the difference between being a peasant and a serf.
