Tim Chan, the executive chief editor of Hong Kong Economic Journal, has questioned the effectiveness of U.S. Government measures to save the economy. He says Quantitative Easing (QE) that increases the liquidity of money is not a solution to economic woes.

Nowadays, people save their money in bank, but the rate is very low. The rate is low, but the inflation is high. Therefore, we cannot get the benefit. He cites an example. “A meal is about $30 or $40, it is higher than many years ago,” he says.

From his point of view, the QE1 and QE2 just liked the pill of the high blood pressure. “It is difficult to justify whether it is effective or not.” His newspaper always criticized the USA government’s action. They printed much money, but the action could not deal with the USA problem to improve the hard situation. Till now, the USA unemployment’s rate is about 8%.

As for QE3, the bond rate was low after QE1 and QE2. Many people invested in the bond market that it could attract the overseas capital. It seemed like that. Thus, there was a criticism about that USA treated, other countries pay. In fact, the action caused the result. Other countries were influenced. “China also buys several million bonds,” he said.
