Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Global stock and bond markets rise and fall in response to naunces in speeches made by Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan and other Fed officials. In fact, markets often vacillate immediately and dramatically in response to Greenspan's public remarks. The relationship bertween Fed monetary policy and security return patterns deserves serious examination, and receives it within these pages.

This book presents substantial evidence that an association exists between monetary conditions and returns to various asset classes. It goes on to show how, over the past four decades, investors had the opportunity to use monetary policy to significantly enhance their portfolio performances.

Designed to help readers better understand the importance of monetary policy in investment management, this book also explores topics such as

  • How one can gauge the monetary policy stance of the Federal Reserve
  • What actions the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) take that affect monetary aggregates
  • How many "tools" the Fed relies to carry out its objectives.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A big question for all investors is how Federal Reserve policy will affect the markets in the years ahead. This short book has some relevant data, but so much has changed from the 1960-1998 period that it considers. For example nowadays we judge mon policy by the FF rate (and QE), while this book uses the Discount Rate as the criterion. This book considers the effect of mon pol on stock size deciles, but it does not consider book-to market deciles.
