QE2 is short for a second round of so-called quantitative easing, announced by the Fed in November 2010, that would have the Fed by $600 billion in U.S. Treasuries in order to lower long-term interest rates and drive an economic recovery.
Critics argue this quantitative easing amounts to printing money and could spur inflation.
