Quantitative Easing (v.) - A way for the government to manage the country's financial system by increasing the money supply (more money floating around). The government accomplishes this by flooding financial institutions with capital through buying of government securities and other securities to encourage increased lending and liquidity. Quantitative Easing operations are rarely used by the government only after interest rates have been lowered to near 0% but have not had the desired effect.
