  • Welcoming Remarks, Federal Reserve Governor Michelle W. Bowman, At The Women In Banking Symposium, Federal Reserve Bank Of Richmond, Richmond, Virginia (Via Webcast)

    Date 19/10/2021

    Good afternoon. It is a pleasure to be able to join you today for this conversation, and as a bank regulator and former banker, I am pleased that this conference is making the case for diversity in terms that everyone in business can understand. At any time, but especially now when attracting and keeping skilled and talented employees is so challenging, it only makes sense that you'll get the best employees if both men and women see a business with diverse leadership, and the opportunity to advance. And when a large share of your customers are women, when understanding their perspective is so important to your business, having women in leadership positions will help you serve these customers better and make you a more profitable and successful enterprise.

  • BIS: The Treasury Market In Spring 2020 And The Response Of The Federal Reserve

    Date 19/10/2021

    Focus

    In March 2020, as the Covid-19 crisis intensified, stress emerged in the market for Treasury securities. During the period 9–18 March, the 10-year yield surged sharply by 64 basis points while the stock market kept falling. This is contrary to typical risk-off events which are characterised by a simultaneous drop in equity prices and long-term yields. In response to these developments, on 15 March 2020 the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Fed) unveiled a new programme to buy large amounts of Treasuries. Purchases exceeded $1 trillion in Q1 2020. This paper seeks to provide new facts and analysis to improve understanding of the episode.

  • BIS: Joined At The Hip: Monetary And Fiscal Policy In A Liquidity-Dependent World

    Date 19/10/2021

    Summary

    Focus

    In a low interest rate environment, financing government operations by issuing bonds is very similar to financing them by issuing bank reserves, ie money. But there remains one key difference: the way their prices are set. The price of money is the inverse of the price level. If prices are sticky, so is the price of money in terms of goods. By contrast, the price of bonds in terms of goods is free to jump all over the place. This difference matters a great deal for a number of monetary and fiscal policy issues.
