Report Questions Effectiveness of Fed’s Crisis-Era Purchases

first_img Report Questions Effectiveness of Fed’s Crisis-Era Purchases 2008 Financial Crisis Federal Reserve Federal Reserve Bank of New York Monetary Policy Report Quantitative Easing U.S. Monetary Policy Forum U.S. Treasury University of Chicago Booth School of Business William Dudley 2018-02-24 David Wharton Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago February 24, 2018 2,338 Views  Print This Post About Author: David Wharton The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save A report presented Friday by economists at the U.S. Monetary Policy Forum questioned the effectiveness of the Federal Reserve’s asset purchases during the 2008 financial crisis.The conference is held annually at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, uniting Fed officials with economists from both Wall Street and academia. The paper in question was entitled “A Skeptical View of the Impact of the Fed’s Balance Sheet,” and its authors included authors include Morgan Stanley Senior Desk Economist David Greenlaw, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Head of Global Economic Research Ethan Harris, University of Wisconsin economics professor Kenneth West, and University of California economist James Hamilton.As reported by CNBC, the paper argues that “the consensus view that the Fed’s quantitative easing lowered 10-year Treasury yields by 1 percentage point (100 basis points) was overstated, and that Fed asset purchases did not have as much impact on long Treasury yields as generally believed.” Instead, it claims that the effects of the Fed’s crisis-era actions on 10-year yields were temporary.”Going forward, we expect the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet to stay large,” the paper states, continuing to argue that “the most important and reliable instrument of monetary policy is the short-term interest rate.”New York Fed President William Dudley countered the paper’s arguments in a statement posted on the New York Fed’s official website. Dudley said, “While additional study of the effects of large-scale asset purchase (LSAP) programs should be encouraged—as it furthers our understanding of the use of these unconventional monetary policy tools—the paper’s findings do not, in my mind, invalidate the use of LSAPs when the Federal Reserve is operating at or close to the zero lower bound for short-term interest rates. That is the key issue—not the magnitude of the effects of LSAPs or whether short-term interest rates should be the primary tool of monetary policy.”Dudley went on to argue that “LSAPs remain useful to have in the toolkit for those times when the short-term interest rate tool may not be available.”On Friday, the Federal Reserve delivered its semi-annual Monetary Policy Report to Congress, noting widespread improvements in the U.S. economy and an uptick inflation near the end of 2017. The report stated the Fed’s belief that inflation will continue to stay at or near the Fed’s target rate of 2 percent during 2018. The report did not shed much light on whether the Fed plans three or four interest rate hikes in 2018, but more may be revealed when new Fed Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress on Wednesday, February 28.

Teacher contract conflict deepens

first_imgNORWALK – It used to be that when the school year started, the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District already had a new contract with its teachers association. But those days appear to be gone. In the 2004-05 school year, there was no agreement until December 2004. In this school year, the two sides remain at odds nearly six months after school started. The two sides apparently are close to impasse, a situation in which a mediator would be sent to work with both sides. Another bargaining session is scheduled for Friday. The Teachers Association of La Mirada has held rallies at school board meetings in November and December. Teachers are again expected to be out in force at Monday’s meeting. There also are plans to picket at their schools before and after work. The argument is over money. The teachers want a 4 percent pay raise, with 3.5percent retroactive from September through July. The district has offered 3percent. Superintendent Ginger Shattuck said the district can’t afford the raises the teachers want. Gerald Gandolfo, association president, said the district has enough money. While some blame one or the other side, others say the growing divide between the two is a result of changing circumstances. “Events are the driving forces rather than the personalities,” La Mirada Councilman Hal Malkin said. “You have certain conditions – the financial side – which is driving the split between the teachers and administration,” Malkin said. “It’s driving a wedge between them.” Malkin was referring to declining enrollment, decreasing state aid and increasing health insurance costs. Still, there are differences in the way the teachers and administrators negotiate – something both sides concede. “The one thing that has changed is the dynamics of the association itself,” Gandolfo said. “You had Dick Reuther,” he said, referring to the former executive director who is no longer alive. “I use the term warlord in a positive way. He would sit down with the superintendent and hammer out a deal.” But after Reuther retired, the process became more democratic, Gandolfo said. “The process has gone from one-on-one to having the president involved in the bargaining and now you have a bargaining committee,” he said. Shattuck agrees the process has become more adversarial and blames it in part because the district has less money. The district has lost about 1,000 students during the last two years and that’s about $6.2million in revenue, she said. Although the district saves some money by hiring fewer teachers, other costs – such as school administrators, utilities, custodians and other maintenance – continue, she said. Thus, the district can’t afford raises that are as large as in the past, Shattuck said. “We have to make over $3million in cuts to give the 3percent,” she said. “I don’t like this kind of negotiations,” she said. “I think the employees deserve as much of a raise as they can get. But my responsibility is to help keep this district fiscally solvent, not just for this year but into the foreseeable future.” But Gandolfo said the teachers have helped the district by taking low pay raises in the past three years. “We took 0percent two years ago \, 2percent which was below \ last year, and we’re asking for below COLA this year,” he said. Teachers also have agreed to increased class sizes by one student in the fourth through 12th grades, he said. “We can’t continue to carry the burden of the impact on the budget,” Gandolfo said. Gandolfo said the district will get more money in the future – with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposing a 5percent increase in 2006-07 and a 4 percent increase the following year. “There’s lots of money,” he said. But Shattuck said that even with more money coming from the state, declining enrollment means the district still will get less. “We could give the salary increase with no problem this year,” she said. “We would be taking it from our reserves and when it’s gone, it’s gone. We don’t get it replenished.” Shattuck and Maureen Saul, assistant superintendent of business services, must sign a statement that the district will be fiscally solvent over the next three years in order to give a pay raise.

DeGale weighs in ahead of title clash

first_imgJames DeGale weighed in at 11st 13lb 8oz ahead of his European title showdown in Liverpool.The Harlesden man takes on defending champion Piotr Wilczewski, who has lost only one of his 30 professional fights and was a fraction under the 12-stone super-middleweight limit.Wilczewski, 33, has the WBO inter-continental belt as well as the European title, and the Pole is ranked two in the world by the WBO.“It’s going to be a hard fight. The guy’s a good fighter and is coming for a fight, no doubt about it,” DeGale told West London Sport.“I know he hasn’t come here to give up his title and that there’s pressure on me to produce a big performance, but I’m ready to go out there and prove the doubters wrong.”It will be DeGale’s first outing since he lost his British title – and his unbeaten record – to arch-rival and fellow west Londoner George Groves on a majority-decision verdict in May.The 25-year-old is convinced he should have been declared the winner of that bout, but a victory this weekend would put him in line for a rematchor even a world title shot.Promoter Frank Warren wants DeGale to fight for a world titlleDeGale said: “I want to get this European title and then move on to bigger and better things. The super-middleweight division is on fire at the moment and I want to be a part of it because I know I can mix it with the big boys.“If Groves wants to fight me again after this, then great – bring it on. I still think I won that fight and don’t know how someone can win a title fighting on the back foot like that.“But if he wants to run from me, I’ll just move on. This European title shot is a great chance for me to move on to a higher stage and I’m going to grab it with both hands.“Win this fight and I’ll be ranked second in the world by the WBO and also in the top 10 of the other organisations. It’s a cracking opportunity and I’m going to make the most of it.”DeGale’s ponderous start to the grudge match with Groves proved costly and he has pledged to be much more assertive at the Echo Arena on Saturday.And his trainer Jim McDonnell, criticised by some after the Groves fight, believes his man will thrive on the pressure of knowing that he cannot afford to lose this weekend’s encounter.“We’ve worked on cutting the ring down and I’ve been really pleased with James’ work,” said McDonnell, who also trains west London light-middleweight Steve O’Meara.“He’s definitely learned from the Groves fight and I think that loss will be a blessing in disguise – the making of James, not the breaking.“His sparring has been absolutely brilliant and it’s obvious he wants that European title badly. And come fight night, he’ll get it. I think he’ll produce his best performance yet.”last_img read more

Take a Forest Bath

first_imgScience supports a Japanese tradition of “forest bathing” for mental refreshment and overall well-being.“Have you ever wondered why you feel healthier and happier when you stroll through the trees or frolic by the sea?”, an entry in Medical Xpress begins. The answer is not just in the beauty. It’s in beneficial substances, including bacteria, that we inhale in outdoor environments. Japanese scientists traveled to the island of Yakushima, famous for its forests and mountains, to study the practice of “forest bathing” that gives a sense of well being. “The Japanese researchers suggested that we are taking in beneficial substances when we breathe forest air.” Aren’t bacteria our enemies? A few are, but here’s what the article proposes:Research has identified three major inhaled factors that can make us feel healthier. These factors are beneficial bacteria, plant-derived essential oils and negatively-charged ions.From birth to the grave, beneficial bacteria surround us; they live in the environment and, importantly, in the air we breathe. We also share almost our entire body with them. The more interaction we have with them, the happier and healthier we are.If you can’t get outside where the ecology benefits you directly, you can get some benefit from it just by looking out the window. Another article on Medical Xpress says a study found that “views of green space help students perform better”. Students did better on tests when they could see green landscapes out the window, perhaps because it reduces stress.Take it from me; outdoor walks have done wonders for my health after cancer surgery three years ago. I walked 1,000 miles outdoors in 2015 and might break that record this year. I know a pastor that takes outdoor walks as a form of his own personal Sabbath, not as a theological requirement, but as a time for quiet reflection with God. It really helped him after he recovered from cancer, too. Don’t wait for a bad diagnosis. Build healthy habits into your life. It’s a way of saying “Thank you Lord!” for the incomparable body and mind the Creator has given each of us to use on God’s green Earth.(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

SA, Lesotho to upgrade Sani Pass

first_img20 July 2006The road through Sani Pass, one of southern Africa’s most spectacular mountain passes, is to be upgraded, opening up the corridor from Thaba Tseka in Lesotho to Pietermaritzburg in South Africa and providing easier access to the Maloti-Drakensberg transfrontier area.South Africa’s and Lesotho’s transport ministers, Jeff Radebe and Neo Masithela, launched the R160-million upgrade project at the SA-Lesotho border near Underberg in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday.The 33-kilometre gravel road traverses the sheer cliffs of the Drakensberg escarpment in a series of tight zig-zag curves – given names such as “Ice Corner”, “Big Wind Corner” and “Suicide Bend” – climbing more than a kilometre from the Sani Pass Hotel (altitude 1 566m) past the South African border post (1 900m) to the Sani Pass Summit at 2 873m.Originally used to bring goods on pack animals from South Africa to Mokhotlong in the “Mountain Kingdom”, the pass was only opened to vehicle traffic in 1955 and, despite improvements since then, remains extremely steep and rough.Though offroad vehicle enthusiasts may mourn the old Sani’s passing, the road is set to be upgraded into a smooth, tarred surface accessible to normal cars and public transport vehicles.The project is expected to boost development on both sides of the border, opening up the corridor linking Thaba Tseka and Mokhotlong in Lesotho and Himvelle, Underberg and Pietermaritzburg in South Africa.The upgraded road will extend as far as Pietermaritzburg, a centre capable of providing a variety of economic services to Lesotho.Speaking at the launch, Radebe said the project would also provide easier tourist access to the Maloti-Drakensberg transfrontier area that includes the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, a World Heritage site.He said the project would contribute to black economic empowerment by linking an established and emerging consultant via a joint venture agreement.It will also create employment, both during and after construction, through the Zibambele Road Maintenance and Vukuzakhe Contractor Development programmes, both part of the goverment’s Expanded Public Works Programme.The former targets poorer households, especially women-headed households, contracting them for 12 months to perform tasks such as clearing side drains and maintaining road surfaces. The latter involves labour-intensive road upgrade construction.In July 2005, South Africa and Lesotho signed agreements on transport, infrastructure development and co-operation in search and rescue reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
