You're mostly correct.

But 'they' are not expanding the bitcoin supply and 'they' aren't going to change their mind. There is no one making these decisions now. The network expands the money supply at a steady rate based on the number of people running the mining software. The hard limit of 21 million bitcoins will eventually be reached because that is built into the programming. The original programmer made that decision, but now it can't be changed because the network is on a set path. The last bitcoin won't be mined for another hundred years or so though, if I'm not mistaken.
