ECON Discussion 4

The Financial Crisis of 2007 2009 was the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and like that event had global repercussions and consequences. Also like the earlier crisis there were significant events that were under the control of policy makers that made the 2008 crisis worse, among these were lax banking regulations on home loans, a loosening of regulations that had prevented commercial banks from engaging in speculative behavior more typically reserved for investment banks and hedge funds (see also: The London Whale). Please contribute to our discussion this week by writing on whether the crisis could have been prevented or significantly mitigated by better bank supervision.

Interest rates

APA FORMAT ONLY!!


Interest rates are near an all-time low with the prime rate about 5.5% and the Federal Funds rate at 2.4%. This has helped to stabilize and improve the economy over the past several years, and unemployment is now about where it was in 2000, 4%. The Fed is contemplating increasing interest rates in order to forestall potential inflation. If you were an outside advisor to Fed Chair Jerome Powell what advice would you give to him and why?
