this is good. We haven't seen massive amounts of inflation and unemployment is still high, so there's no reason why we shouldn't bring in another round of quantitative easing.

YET.

Inflation is gaining and expected to increase at alarming levels by the beginning of the new year. This action will further devalue the dollar, the only reason why the dollar hasn't been seen as incredibly weak, is the ailing Euro has kept it from looking too bad.

Some aspects of the fed's action may be positive in keeping the employed from going into the other category. The "Fiscal Cliff" will trump any action the Fed can do.

Based on what analysis?

This action will further devalue the dollar, the only reason why the dollar hasn't been seen as incredibly weak, is the ailing Euro has kept it from looking too bad.

I disagree. One of the reasons is because the banks haven't been lending out any money. The FED can only increase the monetary base, but they can't increase the money supply directly. In order to increase the money supply, the banks need to lend money.

Anyways, even though globalization exists, as a percentage of US gdp, only 16% consists of imports. In other words, contrary to popular belief, most goods and services are produced in the US not foreign, so the effects of foreign policy isn't as great as one might think.

If anything, the fiscal cliff would make it so that deflation would occur, not inflation as you stated previously.
