The Federal Reserve is set to end its economic stimulus program [quantitative easing] in October, bringing to an end the controversial five-year-old scheme even as officials said there were signs that the US economy was still in trouble.

Controversial from the outset, QE was designed to keep long-term interest rates down and encourage investors to back stocks or corporate debt in order to stimulate the economy. Stock markets have hit record highs under QE yet the unemployment rate remains high and there are continuing signs of weakness in the wider economy.

Last year, Andrew Huszar, a senior fellow at Rutgers Business School and a former manager of the Fed’s mortgage-backed security purchase programme, called for an end to QE in an article for the Wall Street Journal. He said it had helped Wall Street far more than Main Street. Critics in Congress and elsewhere have also worried that QE will create another financial bubble or excessive inflation.
