‘QE3’ is necessary, Bernanke suggests

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)
The Federal Reserve will soon fire off another round of bond-buying in an effort to goose the economy and bring down the unemployment rate                               
While Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke did not give any hints at the timing of the next Fed move, he made it clear that he’s ready to pull the trigger. The only question that remains is whether it will happen in mid-September or December.                             
The first two rounds of QE have been effective in supporting growth, and it has not led to any acceleration in inflation, he said              
Bernanke said the evidence is clear that the benefits of QE outweigh the costs                               
Of course, not everyone agrees with Bernanke’s assessment, including some members of the Federal Open Market Committee, which must make the call. But Bernanke’s views seem to be the majority opinion on the FOMC, which has stated that further bond-buying will occur unless the economy shows significant and sustained improvement
QE would boost the stock market, of course
But that’s not the main reason for doing it, Bernanke said Friday
The real reason is the immense waste and suffering that unemployment causes                               
This is how he put it: “The stagnation of the labor market in particular is a grave concern not only because of the enormous suffering and waste of human talent it entails, but also because persistently high levels of unemployment will wreak structural damage on our economy that could last for many years.”
The economy still faces many dangers, including self-inflicted wounds inflicted by the Congress and the administration in squeezing fiscal policy tighter
The Fed knows it can’t solve these problems by itself, but that won’t stop it from doing all it can
