QE Forever

posted 9/19/2012 in General

Economic Commentary Highlights...

  • We've had QE1, QE2, and Operation Twist, but last week the Fed announced QE Forever (or what we call open-ended QE).
  • QE will create jobs indirectly, as we should likely see a weaker dollar, lower corporate borrowing costs, and more housing construction.
  • The Fed is probably looking for sustained job creation in the 150,000 to 250,000 per month range before it considers discontinuing QE.
