Research Description

Comparing the Reactions of the Six Major Central Banks to Economic Conditions

There are six major central banks in the world economy - the Federal Reserve (U.S.), the Bank of England (U.K.), the Bank of Japan, the Bank of Canada, the European Central Bank (E.U.), and the Reserve Bank of Australia. Each of these banks is responsible for the health of a strong, developed economy. Each of these banks is politically independent, on paper. Each of these banks has experienced turbulence in recent history. It is the goal of these study to first document how each central bank actually works (respective use of monetary policy) and then how each bank react to crONE.UF. Much of the data I will use is in the public forum.
