As 2008 Keynesian stimulus met and defeated Supply Side economics, the end result is found above by a massive power shift as central banks added and subtracted daily money to maintain the free price system under Supply Side practices to full price and market control under Keynes. It explains why the intent focus on central bank policies, speeches and Forward Guidance. Yet the central banks failed to shoot one straight arrow in eight years.
