Silvano Grimaldi on the impact of the Fed's interest rate policy on the financial markets

Overview of the Fed's interest rate policy
The US Federal Reserve's interest rate policy has an impact on the global economy. The Fed affects the interest rates at which banks lend money to each other to balance their balance sheets. When the Fed lowers interest rates, it becomes cheaper for banks to borrow money, which means they can lend more to consumers and businesses. This in turn leads to an increase in economic activity and jobs. When the Fed raises interest rates, the impact is the opposite of a rate cut.

The Fed's interest rate policy has had a significant impact on financial markets in the past. For example, in the crisis years of 2001 and 2008, the Fed lowered interest rates to stimulate the economy. This caused stock markets to rise as investors expected lower interest rates to stimulate the economy. On the other hand, in the 1970s, the Fed raised interest rates to fight inflation. This led to a recession and falling share prices.
