Eisenbeis on the FOMC: What Next?

Charleston | In this issue of The Institutional Risk Analyst, we feature an important comment by Robert Eisenbeis, PhD., Vice Chairman & Chief Monetary Economist at Cumberland Advisors. Eisenbeis raises a key question at the end of his commentary, namely whether the Federal Open Market Committee is going to run down the level of excess reserves back to pre-crisis levels. Should the FOMC refuse to allow the extraordinary levels of excess reserves to run off, then it implies the permanent nationalization of the short-term credit markets in the US by the Federal Reserve Board.
