Die Geldpolitik in den USA bleibt auch weiterhin sehr expansiv. Aus dem heutigen Statement des FOMC:
"The Committee will maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4 percent and continues to anticipate that economic conditions, including low rates of resource utilization, subdued inflation trends, and stable inflation expectations, are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate for an extended period. The Committee also will maintain its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its securities holdings.Das japanische Szenario (bei allen Unterschieden, die sich in einem solchen durch das höhere Bevölkerungswachstum in den USA ergeben) erscheint mir immer wahrscheinlicher.
The Committee will continue to monitor the economic outlook and financial developments and is prepared to provide additional accommodation if needed to support the economic recovery and to return inflation, over time, to levels consistent with its mandate. "
