The FED’s mandates are too narrow. They aren’t even allowed to recognize the significant deleveraging that is necessary in order to return the economy to a stable base from which to return to healthy growth. As a result, we’re left with a FED pursuing short term policy initiatives that are contrary to free market equilibrium and that tend to excacerbate “boom bust cycles”.

Of course it’s risky, but the economy is at high risk right now anyway, just by inaction.

What else can the Fed do? The Republican-bound legislature has refused to pass any additional spending measures necessary to get the wheels lubricated. Would you rather Bernanke do nothing at all?
