In this article, the writer discusses the quantitative easing strategy and looks at how countries use it to stabilize the economy. The writer describes the use by other countries (Japan and United Kingdom) as well as the United States. The writer provides the history of use of this strategy and then discusses those currently implementing the policy. Finally, the writer examines lessons learned. The writer concludes that the economy issues discussed have made it clear that the world is too interconnected for nations to go it alone in their economic, financial, and regulatory policies and that international cooperation is thus essential if the crisis is to be addressed successfully.

From the Paper:

"It was estimated in 2008 that $675 billion dollars were needed to boost the economy in the United States; to date, an excess of $2 trillion dollars have been introduced into the economy via the Quantitative Easing (QE) strategy (Federal Reserve, 2010a). This is the second use of this strategy to boost the economy and other countries have used it as well. Japan and the United Kingdom within the last decade have used this strategy with mixed reviews on the success. Technologically, the actions implemented in the US will affect both the developed world and emerging nations. In a recent press release by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System announced the committee intends to purchase $600 billion of securities at a pace of $75 billion per month to the end of 2011(2010). This paper will examine the results when this strategy is implemented by a country to solve an inflation situation."
