As the Fed’s stated intention to execute QE2 lurks ever closer — plans to resume asset purchases, including Treasuries, are slated for the November 2nd FMOC meeting — even a few more than average regional Fed bank presidents are breaking rank.

According to Bloomberg, Philadelphia president Charles Plosser said unemployment is a “terrible problem,” but he flat out prefers it “to monetary-policy solutions at this point,” that increase inflation. Even more plainly, he said, “I am less inclined to want to follow a policy that is highly concentrated on raising inflation and raising inflation expectations.”

Nonetheless, QE2 will likely proceed as planned, and many already hard hit by recession will find their remaining dollars even less valuable.
