Not sure what I said to be called a name. *geez*
If you'll actually hear me out, I offer an explanation for why your statement is a contradiction.
The QE that the Fed did during the crisis involved the purchase of mortgage-backed securities. If you look at the the policy of QE from an operational view i.e. the balance sheet, what you will see that is that the Fed and the bank are simply doing an ASSET-SWAP. In return for selling the Fed the MBS, the bank increases their Reserves. For there to be an increase in the money supply, the money has to enter the hands of the public, i.e. USD, money in a checking account.
"Loans can indeed be issued on the increased supply from quantitative easing. We got lucky in that it did not happen."
Loans CAN be issued, yes, and therefore money supply would increase, I agree, but as you rightfully stated, "it did not happen." Therefore, QE did not affect the money supply. You have to understand QE policy from a double-entry accounting concept to recognize that QE policy of purchasing MBS is not the same as printing money. Real "money printing" would be the government selling bonds to the primary market, the Fed's purchasing those bonds to issue reserves, and then taking those reserves and crediting household checking accounts with money. Even if they did that, that still is not sufficient to cause inflation much less hyper-inflation. Additionally, QE policy is not required today to facilitate retail bank loan issuances because the US banks do not operate on a fractional reserve currency system. This ended decades ago. Banks operate under the concept of "demand deposits." Loans create the deposits. Today a bank does not check to see how much "reserve" they have before they go out and issue a loan, its a demand deposit direct from the Fed.
Watch the video link from 7:20 onwards until you get bored. If you have a remote interest in monetary policy and economics, you should know this. It's basic monetary operations that happens at every money desk an American bank.
So all this said, QE is not "money-printing" in any economic sense.
