Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke continues to hint that the Central Reserve Bank will soon initiate another round of quantitative easing (QE) in an effort to revive the stagnant economy. This would be the Fed’s second attempt at such "easing" of the economy. Its initial QE efforts in September of 2008, according to most economists, successfully prevented a global depression.

Although these efforts are designed to encourage investing, some worry about the effects a second round of easing may have on inflation.

Bernanke explained the need for a second application of quantitative easing (QE2) by saying, "Overall economic growth has been proceeding at a pace that is less vigorous than we would like."

Over the past two years, concerns about the economy have fueled a renewed interest in frugal living, wise investing, and other principles crucial to building wealth and creating financial security. Finance-related blog addresses these issues in its regularly updated posts.

One recent post entitled Imagine What a Buck Could Do Before You Gain that Wealth advocates investing windfalls in a mix of stocks, bonds, gold, REITs and cash.

The posts’ author Vered Deleeuw explains, "You then live off the interest that the bond portion generates, allowing the stocks to appreciate long-term, each year selling just enough of the stock portion (which tends to grow faster) to stick with your asset allocation plan and refill your bond cushion."

Similarly it’s hoped that the Fed’s QE2 efforts will result in corporations investing the windfall of cash in developing their organizations and thereby buoying the market and stimulating jobs growth. Only time will tell whether this gamble will achieve the desired outcome.
