The Financial Crisis and Recovery: Why so Slow? - September/October 2011

The Financial Crisis and Recovery: Why so Slow? - September/October 2011 | money money money | Scoop.it

"The U.S. economy has only very slowly recovered from the recession of 2007 to 2009. U.S. history provides no support for an explanation based on the financial crisis itself, although data on financial crises in some other countries appear to do so. The recent slow recovery is most similar to the Great Depression. Low aggregate demand for reasons unrelated to the financial crisis may be an explanation for both episodes, but uncertainty and government policies are an alternative supported by recent research on the Great Depression."

The euro crisis returns

The euro crisis returns | money money money | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, the European Central Bank (ECB) announced symbolic cuts to the already-low interest rates that prevailed in the euro zone. The rates are indistinguishable from zero per cent. Banks have to pay an interest rate of 0.2% to the ECB if they kept the money with it. Then, there is the targeted long-term refinance operations (LTRO) which has already been announced. The purely monetary approach to the global economic problems continues. The belief in the omnipotence of monetary policy is breathtaking. That the policy is unprecedented, unusually prolonged and globally pervasive and hence has uncertain and unpredictable consequences does not seem to bother either investors or policymakers.

How can central bankers avoid another financial crisis? | money money money | Scoop.it

It is an occupational hazard. Central bankers believe, with a mixture of wishful thinking and empirical evidence, that their own credibility is critical to the success of monetary policy. There is little room, then, for exhibiting self-doubt, with a tendency for new policies to be grasped with gusto and the old to be quickly discarded.
