Week #6 Assignments due 21 Nov 2017
Discussion Board: In the last week of January 2016, the Fed decided not to raise the target interest rates. After the news, exchange rates, stock markets, bond markets and other financial markets, even in other countries fluctuated a lot. It seems that the world economy is very much dependent on the USA Fed’s announcement. As we live in globalized world, we cannot avoid risk associated with the markets in other countries and the Fed’s policy seems to drive the world economy. Why do you think the world economy is so sensitive to the Fed’s policy? Do you think the Fed should be responsible for the world economy when the US economy is their responsibility? Please support your responses from reading assignments and at least one additional source related to this time and event. Cite/list sources using the APA style.
