Bernanke Leaves Door Open to Further Easing


Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke left the door open to a fresh shot of monetary stimulus should the economic rebound he’s predicting fail to materialize.

The Fed would be “prepared to take additional action, obviously, if conditions warranted,” including the purchase of more Treasury securities, Bernanke said yesterday after U.S. central bankers met in Washington. The economy will probably overcome constraints from elevated energy prices and Japan-related disruptions to manufacturing, he said. Still, declininghome prices, high unemployment and weaknesses in the financial system may restrain the recovery in the longer term, he said.


Well I guess we have our answer to if there will be a QE3.
