The strategy and consistency of Federal Reserve monetary policy, 1924-1933 by David C Wheelock( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, most scholars agree that mismanaged monetary policy contributed to the length and severity of the Great Depression. There is little agreement, however, about the causes of the Federal Reserve's mistakes. Some argue that leadership and other organizational changes prior to the depression caused a distinct change in policy strategy that lessened the Fed's responsiveness to economic conditions. Others contend that there was no change in Fed behavior, and that errors during the depression are traceable to previous policies."--BOOK JACKET. "In this book, David C. Wheelock examines the policy strategy developed by the Federal Reserve during the 1920s and considers whether its continued use could explain the Fed's failure to respond vigorously to the depression. He also studies the effects on policy of the institutional changes occurring prior to the depression. While these changes enhanced the authority of officials who opposed open-market purchases and also caused some upward bias in discount rates, Wheelock concludes that monetary policy during the depression was in fact largely a continuation of the previous policy. The apparent contrast in Fed responsiveness to economic conditions between the 1920s and early 1930s resulted from the consistent use of a procyclical policy strategy that caused the Fed to respond more vigorously to minor recessions than to severe depressions."--Jacket

The financial crisis of 2007-09 is widely viewed as the worst financial disruption since the Great Depression of 1929-1933. However, the accompanying economic recession was mild compared with the Great Depression, though severe by postwar standards
The geographic distribution and characteristics of U.S. bank failures, 2007-2010 : Do bank failures still reflect local economic conditions?( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The financial crisis and recession that began in 2007 brought a sharp increase in the number of bank failures in the United States. This article investigates characteristics of banks that failed and regional patterns in bank failure rates during 2007-2010. The article compares the recent experience with that of 1987-1992, when the United States last experienced a high number of bank failures
Banker preferences, interbank connections, and the enduring structure of the federal reserve system by Matthew Jaremski( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Established by a three person Reserve Bank Organization Committee (RBOC) in 1914, the structure of the Federal Reserve System has remained essentially unchanged ever since, despite criticism at the time and over ensuing decades. This paper examines the selection of cities for Reserve Banks and branches, and of district boundaries. We show that each aspect of the Fed's structure reflected the preferences of national banks, including adjustments to district boundaries after the Fed was established. Further, using newly-collected information on the locations of each national bank's correspondents, we find that banker preferences mirrored established interbank connections. The Federal Reserve was thus formed on top of the structure that it was meant to replace
