Robert Rubin: QE3 Danger Ahead

The Fed’s inflation-fighting ability is key to avoiding another crisis, ex-Treasury secretary tells conference.

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary and Goldman Sachs and Citigroup veteran Robert Rubin warned that U.S. political discourse needs to change because the Federal Reserve’s current monetary policy has gone as far as it can go. Rubin spoke today at the TradeTech financial industry conference held in New York City.

“The first round of quantitative easing [QE 1] was necessary,” Rubin says. “[The second round] was not as necessary.”
