Hedge Fund Managers Criticize The Federal Reserve

There was this conference in New York this week, the Delivering Alpha conference and there was a lot of coverage in the press because a lot of high profile hedge fund billionaires were speaking very negatively about the Federal Reserve.

What they were saying was that the Fe`s policy of zero percent interest rates and quantitative easing have been a failure, that they had not delivered the economic growth that was promised, that actually they undermined economic growth and undermined capital investment and as a result of what the Fed has done the economy has grown less than it would have had they not done it.
