"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence," said Carl Sagan, astronomer extraordinaire. That philosophy should apply to anything. If you say you can read minds or levitate, then at least back it up with substantial evidence that you can do so.
The same should be true for the policies of the Federal Reserve, which has implemented some extraordinary monetary policy over the last few years. The question is, where is the evidence that it works?
Unfortunately, the Fed's policy making experts haven't got the goods to back up their claims.
