Credit Crunch Mk II (2019 edition)

Perhaps someone who is smarter than me (with a GCSE in maths) can explain why the ECB has announced a new round of Quantitative Easing today and Trump is practically demanding the Fed to do the same? This is in the same week that Sajid Javid announces a rosy future for the UK economy and "end of austerity". What the ... is going on?? I thought Qe was only used in emergencies. Me thinks something is awry and the whole Brexit situation is distracting us from the truth that the global economy is up shit creek.

Basically fear has taken hold with many factors to blame, geopolitical tensions across the Middle East and Asia, trade wars escalating between the US/China and to a certain extent the EU, add as well the Italian government crisis and brexit headache. There was some "green shoots" in the earlier part of 2019 but with the former going on central banks are changing their monetary policy as growth is being revised down across the board, personally reckon its going to be like this for a while to come.
