The Fed's Dan Tarullo hints the bank is considering a new program of buying MBS to boost the economy. "I believe we should move back up toward the top of the list of options the large-scale purchase of additional MBS," he says in a speech. Tarullo's comments are especially notable because he's a lawyer focused on bank regulation, and to date has not really addressed the economy.

    FED is getting really desperate now. Just a couple days ago they were suggesting to abandon the inflation target of 2%.
