Overview

The Fed and the BOE appear to have been the most successful so far in terms of the effectiveness of their QE. The ECB has been only modestly successful, and The Bank of Japan, although the longest modern user of QE, has been the least effective. In 2018, the UK, US, Eurozone, and Japan accounted for nearly 50% - around $42 trillion - of the world’s $85.8 trillion of GDP.

Key learning objectives:

  • Outline the benefits of QE

  • Learn when QE was introduced in the Eurozone and Japan

  • Understand why some countries were reluctant to adopt QE
