Economists: Fed's actions could cause inflation


The National Association of Business Economists has a number of members who are worried about inflation, according to a new survey of its economists. The poll shows "Half of the economists do not believe the quantitative easing actions of the Fed will be inflationary over the next couple of years while 41 percent think they will."

The reason for concern is simple. The Fed has put too much money into the markets some experts say, and when the economy recovers, this liquidity will cause too much money to chase too few assets.
