James Bullard comments on the Fed’s dual mandate. Mr. Bullard has been a proponent of quantitative easing 2.0.

The only thing the Fed can do is provide price stability. With inflation near zero, what exactly is the purpose of injecting another $600 billion in high powered money into the banking system?
