The author argues that under the leadership of Ben Bernanke, the U.S. Federal Reserve Board has failed to control the excess money it injected into the economy through a series of interest rate increases. He is convinced that lenders and investors used this excess money without considering its negative economic effect. He contends that the Federal Reserves' inflation-related policy exaggerated the demand generated by the growing global economy.
