Praise for Financial Markets, Banking, and MonetaryPolicy “A lucid treatment that takes on board shadow-banking,Dodd-Frank, the zero lower bound, and forward guidance. In short,all the key post-crisis issues.” —Anil Kashyap, Edward Eagle Brown Professor of Economicsand Finance, University of Chicago “The financial sector is a vital component of the USeconomic machinery. The Federal Reserve works within this sector topromote its congressional mandates of maximum employment and lowinflation. Unfortunately, the contribution of the financial systemto the economy’s performance is not well understood. Studentsof standard college courses on money, banking, and monetary policyoften find that the textbooks have not kept pace with the evolutionof the financial sector, including the rise of securitized financeand the Federal Reserve’s evolving monetary operations.
