An inflation target of 2.5% is far too low of an expectation, if you’re seeking the kind of growth necessary to return to full employment; the only reason any Fed would keep their target that low, is because they’re overly stuck on historical averages, not post-recessionary rates.

The debasement of the dollar through currency expansion and the resulting inflation is the unwritten policy of the Fed and the US government. It has been so since at least the second term of the Bush administration if not earlier. What this amounts to is capitulation. Our government realizes that there is no politically palatable way to address our deficit spending and the mountain of debt that has accumulated. Therefore, they have adopted a policy that will bring about a necessary reduction in our overall standard of living while reducing the value of our debt via massive inflation. Unfortunately, such policies often result in periods of severe economic chaos. We should hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
