The object of this paper is to demonstrate the possible risks of quantitative easing in the long run. The analysis is conducted in the conventional framework of IS-LM curves in a sequential model, which assumes that the independence of supply and demand curves does not necessarily hold. It is established that this lack of independence coupled with a very flat (or kinked) IS curve may lead to falls in income in second period as a consequence of quantitative easing. Such easing may alter the behavior of investors who get encouraged to undertake very risky and leveraged investments. Thus, short term gains may be outweighed by long term losses from quantitative easing. In some cases such easing may create bubbles in the economy, for example, in the housing and stock markets which collapse at some point in time.
