Assignment 25460

Could the crisis have been prevented or significantly mitigated
by better bank supervision?
The justification for low interest rates is no longer to save
banks, but instead to goose the stock market as an indirect way to
create jobs. And now, mutual and hedge-fund managers are scrambling
their brains trying to figure out when rates will rise, trying to
outguess the Fed and other investors. So what is your take on the timing
of this turn?​
Housing Starts after suffering their worst collapse in decades
appear to have bottomed out two years ago and once again are recovering. Is the American Dream like the mythical Phoenix rising from the ashes? Your take!​
Monetary policy in the US, especially the desire to increase
interest rates at some time soon, will have international repercussions.
One of these will be to strengthen an already strong dollar. Please discuss the consequences of such an interest rate rise
on the US economy, taking into consideration the global ramifications.​
