It has worked really well. Banks and businesses have improved their balance sheets. High yield names have lessened their leverage. Ironically, high quality companies have increased their leverage (which won't really be an issue until 2016 when we have a maturity wall starting to hit). We have seen economic growth since 2009 despite tight fiscal conditions.
