Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

By encouraging Americans to believe prices will start rising at a faster pace, the Fed would reduce inflation-adjusted interest rates and stimulate the economy.

Wait - what? Inflation goes up, real purchasing power decreases, people borrow more from bankrupt banks that aren't lending to make up the gap, the economy grows?
