The US Fed and the ECB saved the banking and financial system from meltdown in 2008 and after, but just how successful and effective were they? Why was the US Fed quicker off the mark and why was the US economic recovery superior to the Eurozone? And in both countries, do we think a monetary response alone was sufficient? Did citizens in the real economy have to pay too high a price for the bankers’ crisis?

Has the time now come to make over-powerful central banks more accountable and responsive to federal democracies? Is central bank ‘independence’ still justified? Are the current policies of the Eurozone threatening the break-up of the EU?
