Recently, the U.S. Federal Reserve has enacted quantitative easing totaling $2.3 trillion, from $1.7 trillion of Treasuries and mortgage-backed bonds, to its recent $600 billion purchases of intermediate and long-term Treasuries. The Fed is learning from Japan's 1990 mistake of not offering stimulus for long enough. Lead economists are anticipating higher inflation as the most significant outcome from this policy.
