Think about it… the “cover story” is all on how QE will help interest rates improve – but realistically, are slightly lower rates even what is truly needed to boost consumer demand and create jobs? Rates are pretty low as they stand right now…so why do more QE? Hmm… might just be to devalue the Dollar, and boost our economy through making our exports relatively cheaper for foreign buyers. And this is not a bad thing – but we have to be aware that while QE2 might provide an initial decline for interest rates – the devaluation of the Dollar will ultimately drive rates higher.
