What to Expect from Major Central Banks in the Next Global Economic Downturn


With interest rates at or near record lows for a number of major advanced economies, there are legitimate concerns that central banks have limited room to provide stimulus in the event of a recession. Central banks would need to pursue unconventional channels -- negative policy rates combined with asset purchases and forward guidance. On October 15th Doug Hostland will discuss some of the challenges that this entails.
