Central Banks Chomping At the Bit: Perpetual ‘QE’

by Pater Tenebrarum, Financial Sense:

In recent days, numerous central bank bureaucrats have given us hints that another round of pump priming is more or less imminent. It started with John Williams, president of the San Francisco Fed who mused about ‘QE without a limit’. The FT reported:

    Unless it has escaped their notice, none of the QEs has worked to jump start the US economy. When one does something and the result is not what one desires, then one tries something else that might work better. Doing the same thing over and over in the hope that it will work eventually is not a rational plan. Unless, of course, there is a different plan than has been stated all along that doesn’t care if the US economy improves.
