As we approach the 10th Anniversary of The Great Recession of 2008 it is worth analyzing the extraordinary response from the Federal Reserve and other central banks, in the form of the most protracted period of monetary accommodation in history.  This central bank policy may or may not have distorted security prices and asset markets, and has clearly had an effect on the global economy. However, are all of these effects positive and are there any long-term negative effects from them?

Learning Objectives: 

  • Analyze the central bank response to the GFC
  • Discuss the pros and cons and lasting effects of these policies
  • Understand if these policies effect or should effect the way fundamental analysts value securities
  • Determine if there are any long-lasting changes to fundamental analysis as a result of these actions
