Paola Subacchi

Paola Subacchi, Professor of International Economics at the University of London’s Queen Mary Global Policy Institute, shared an article on the limits on extreme monetary policy. The Covid-19 pandemic has forced central banks across the world to cut interest rates to negative levels.

The European Central Bank, the Bank of England, and the Bank of Japan are considering cutting interest rates to negative levels. The article notes that policy makers should focus on expanding fiscal policy rather than cutting interest rates. Such a policy would help individuals and businesses impacted by the pandemic, while driving economic recovery.
