Meltzer: QE a bad idea by Fed
Quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve is a bad idea, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy.

Globe and Mail, 11/3/2010
Meltzer: Fed needs to explain plans
The most important thing the Federal Reserve can do now is explain in a coherent and believable way how they are going to get rid of more than a trillion dollars in reserves without creating inflation, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Meltzer says the central bank does not currently have a plan. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/economy/interest-rates/fed-chief-takes-a-gamble-on-spending/article1784296/

Meltzer: Friedman would not have endorsed deliberate inflation

Meltzer predicts dissent among Fed’s regional presidents next year
The Federal Reserve is like to see three dissenters toward its monetary policy among its regional presidents next year, according to Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Though three votes fall well short of the majority on the Federal Open Market Committee, they are significant because a Fed chairman has not faced that many dissenting votes since 1992.

Financial Times, 11/7/2010
Goodfriend illustrates how Congress’ inaction influences Fed thinking
Occasions when the Federal Reserve was pushed into fiscal policy because Congress was unwilling to act still resonate today, according to Marvin Goodfriend, professor of economics; director, The Gailliot Center for Public Policy. One example was how the Fed was reluctant to be left “holding the bag” on Mexico in 1994 after Congress refused to authorize a package of loans, Goodfriend says.

New York Times, 11/7/2010
Meltzer: Fed risks losing its inflation-fighting credibility
The Federal Reserve is pumping money into an economy already awash in cash, and commercial banks are stockpiling money through their deposits at the Fed instead of lending it, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Meltzer believes the Fed risks squandering its inflation-fighting credibility and thinks a moratorium on new regulations and tax rates will better spur stimulus.

Bloomberg, 11/7/2010
Fed faces two-sided risk, Goodfriend says
More often than not, the Federal Reserve has erred on the side of too little restraint and too much inflation, says Marvin Goodfriend, professor of economics; director, The Gailliot Center for Public Policy. The central bank now faces two-sided risks, and “when you approach price stability, sometimes it is warranted to be worried about too little inflation,” Goodfriend says.

Goodfriend: Inflating away debt ‘a huge issue’

Argote: Dissatisfaction with supervisor top reason for quitting
One of the biggest reasons people quit their jobs is dissatisfaction with a supervisor, according to Linda Argote, David M. Kirr and Barbara A. Kirr Professor of Organizational Behavior and Theory; editor-in-chief, Organization Science; director, Center of Organizational Learning, Innovation and Performance. Employees in smaller firms are more likely to quit because they may have fewer options to move away from the supervisor, she adds.
