President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York William Dudley attends a forum organized by Mexico's Central Bank in Mexico City October 15, 2013. REUTERS/Tomas Bravo William Dudley, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, admitted in a forum in Mexico that Fed honchos really don't understand how QE works, according to this article by Reuters.

The real signal is that the Fed has only a limited range of therapy for the condition it has created itself.
