Monetary Policy and Investment Opportunities


This book combines the institutional approach to understanding monetary policy with the theories and principles involved in applying that knowledge to investing. A review of the origins of the Federal Reserve is followed by an historical progression of the Fed into the powerful arbiter of U.S. economic policy today. The actual conduct and effects of monetary policy are then explained with an eye toward developing the skills necessary to identify changes in policy that can be applied to the investment world. The effects of monetary policies on financial markets and on particular industries are then discussed followed by a description of the investment instruments that will be impacted by different policies. In conclusion, a chapter of suggestions for hedging against changes in monetary policy and another chapter describing the tools that can be used for this purpose are offered.
