ABSTRACT
The article examines the reasons behind the low inflation in the U.S. as of April 2014. Large scale asset purchases were declared to be a new policy tool by the Federal Open Market Committee of the Federal Reserve to improve the economy after the target federal funds rate had already been reduced to a range between 0 and 25 basis points. Others say that the unusually low inflation is caused by the weakening of the money multiplier.
