Join an online masterclass with Alex Michaelides, Professor of Finance to get a taster of the academic experience at Imperial College Business School.
About the masterclass
Many of the world’s most pressing problems — from addressing climate change, developing sustainable food and water systems, and improving human health and well-being — depend critically on the Central bank actions affect the economy and asset prices. Every country around the world has its own central bank and many of these institutions make decisions independently to achieve certain goals they are given from governments.
In this masterclass, we start our focus from the U.S. central bank (the Federal Reserve Board) and analyze its actions. How is U.S. monetary policy determined? How can we measure U.S. monetary policy? What are the effects of U.S. monetary policy on asset prices? We start from the U.S. because those actions tend to affect the decisions of other central banks around the world. We discuss that dependence to better understand the channels through which U.S. monetary policy can affect asset prices in a country far away from the U.S.
