July 31 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. may now be in a ``very long'' recession that will drive the unemployment rate higher, with little that the Federal Reserve can do to help, said Harvard University Professor Martin Feldstein.

``I don't see recovery'' on the horizon, Feldstein, who headed the National Bureau of Economic Research until June and serves on the group's recession-dating panel, said in an interview with Bloomberg Radio.

Feldstein said the Fed has already lowered interest rates as much as it can to help growth, and that exports offer the only bright spot, while they aren't strong enough to fuel a recovery. A former adviser to President Ronald Reagan, he also warned that policies proposed by Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, would prolong the downturn.
