Andrew Huszar
Name: Andrew Huszar

HOT 100: A former Morgan Stanley managing director, Andrew Huszar managed the Federal Reserve's first foray into quantitative easing, a $1.25 trillion mortgage-backed security purchase program in 2009-2010. But Huszar has since had a Saul-on-the-Damascus-road moment, and is now one of QE's biggest critics, calling the Fed's current $85bn-per-month bond-buying program "the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time" in the Wall Street Journal. Huszar argues that the Fed's always-on money faucets are allowing Washington to avoid confronting the real crisis: a fundamentally unsound U.S. economy.
