As prices start to rise and fingers start pointing at the Fed for fueling the inflation, QE will be brought to an abrupt halt. At that point, Congress will have to come up with an extra 6 percent of GDP on a permanent basis either via huge tax hikes or huge spending cuts, says Laurence Kotlikoff in this article, Is Hyperinflation Just Around The Corner?, at Forbes.
