"QE – The story so far"
In recent years, monetary policy has supported advanced economies around the world. In particular, central banks have expanded their balance sheets as a tool for loosening monetary policy (often known as ‘quantitative easing’ or ‘QE’). This talk reviews the evidence on the impact this policy has had on economic activity, and presents new empirical analysis on the aggregate macroeconomic impact of balance sheet expansions across time and countries.
