It might ask but it's not gonna happen....QE2 had the political spotlight and is perceived as a failed policy....the masses don't care that it's bailed out wallstreet while their economic world is still suffering....
But what else can they do to save the economy from slipping into recession again? Obama administration, politicians on both Houses and the Fed all have the common interest of keeping this "recovery" alive, at least on the surface, don't they?
Oil prices want to go higher and I think people are just going to have to bite the bullet, quit complaining, and pay the $500/month per car to keep them on the road.
They can save some money by ignoring their dental care, buy less healthy food, slow down any investments in their education, cut corners on home maintenance, particularly with autos as they neglect well, and see if you can maybe lift some office supplies or business inventory from the office and sell it on Ebay.
Too bad. In order to have the crude prices to come down thus the coresponding gas prices, the last we need from Ben is to give another pump on the market since his persistent generosity has been done more good on commodity prices than on the economy per se as witnessed by the continuing dismal performance in housing throughout this "recovery".
