Learning Goal: I’m working on a finance case study and need a sample draft to help me learn.Case Study 1: Interest Rate & Monetary Policy: Steering Monetary Policy Through Unprecedented CrisesAbout the Case. What? The Fed again? And interest rates again? Isn’t this old?We’ll this is a Fixed Income course … interest rate levels and Central Bank Policy on its level of interest rates remains a big component/outlook in bond markets.

Yes, this Case was twelve years ago, but history also repeats itself in the financial markets — now we are facing a social crisis wrapped in and economic crisis caused by a health crisis. And in another year or two, we will know soon enough if it becomes a financial crisis.
Case Guidance: what to submit. Economic policy decisions are much easier to make in retrospect than in prospect. They are also much easier to make if all the evidence points in one direction.

In early 2008 the U.S. and European officials clearly were viewing much the same information but came to different policy conclusions. Some have described this as “viewing the same mountain but from different lookout points”.Please draft a short essay (3-4 pages perhaps) discussing the following [grading metrics]:[1-point] Different emphasis which the policymakers placed on the available information,
[1-point] The historical perspectives,
[1-point] The structural perspectives,
[2-points] Decisions that they made
