Politiques monétaires : le grand écart

Abstract : The financial crisis and inflationary pressures driven by oil and food prices generated various monetary policy answers. The Fed lowered the target for the Federal Funds rate by 3 percentage points since last August to 2.25% and will lower it again to 1.75% from April to avoid a too sharp slowdown of US activity. The ECB kept interest rates unchanged and will leave them at 4%, waiting for inflation to decelerate below 2% in the euro area. The Bank of England cut the base rate by 0.75 percentage point to 5.0 and will lower it to 4.25% by early 2009, to allow inflation to decelerate without output growth falling too rapidly. The Bank of Japan will maintain interest rates at 0.5% with inflation remaining subdued and output growth prospects uncertain.
