Federal Reserve Board announces the extensions of its temporary U.S. dollar liquidity swap lines and the temporary repurchase agreement facility for foreign and international monetary authorities (FIMA repo facility) through March 31, 2021.
As part of our 2019 audit of the Bureau's information security program, we tested technical controls for the agency's Legal Enclave, which includes systems and processes that are used to collect, store, process, and transmit critical information related to investigations and litigation. We found several security vulnerabilities in the Legal Enclave.
The Bureau is funded primarily through transfers from the Board, averaging $487.1 million a year from FY 2012 to FY 2019. We chose to review the Bureau's budget and funding processes. We determined that the Bureau designed and implemented controls over its budget and funding request processes and the Board designed and implemented controls over the funds transfer process to fulfill the agencies' respective responsibilities outlined in the Dodd-Frank Act. In addition, the Bureau generally complied with legal requirements to produce certain budget- and funding-related information and report it to certain stakeholders.
Federal Reserve Board finalizes rule that implements technical, clarifying updates to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) procedures and changes to rules for the disclosure of confidential supervisory information (CSI)
This memorandum report highlights the results of our data analytics testing of the Board's suitability and personnel screening processes. The results of our testing show that the processes are operating effectively and in accordance with the Board's policies. Given the sensitivity of our review, this report is restricted.
Federal Reserve Board modifies Main Street Lending Program to provide greater access to credit for nonprofit organizations such as educational institutions, hospitals, and social service organizations.
, , , | Researchers, policymakers, and market participants have become increasingly focused on the effects of uncertainty and risk on financial market and economic outcomes. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of the many existing measures of risk, uncertainty, and volatility. It summarizes what these measures capture, how they are constructed, and their effects, paying particular attention to large uncertainty spikes, such as those appearing concurrently with the outbreak of COVID-19. The measures are divided into three types: (1) news-based, survey- based, and econometric; (2) asset market based; and (3) Knightian uncertainty. While uncertainty has significant real and financial effects and spills over across countries, the size an.
and | We quantitatively evaluate the role of supply and demand of safe assets in determining neutral interest rates. Using an empirical cross-country state-space model, we find that the net supply of sovereign safe assets available to the private sector in secondary markets is an important driver of neutral rates for 11 advanced economies in the period 1970–2018. We also find that the global accumulation of international reserves in sovereign safe assets since the 1990s (the global savings glut) lowered the net supply of these assets and, thus reduced neutral rates by up to 50 basis points in our sample.
Lena Dräger, Michael J. Lamla, and | Using a new consumer survey dataset, we document a new dimension of heterogeneity in inflation expectations that has implications for consumption and saving decisions as well as monetary policy transmission. We show that German households with the same inflation expectations differently assess whether the level of expected inflation and of nominal interest rates is appropriate or too high/too low. The `hidden heterogeneity' in expectations stemming from these opinions is related to demographic characteristics and affects current and planned spending in addition to the Euler equation effect of the perceived real interest rate. Furthermore, these differences in opinions affect German households differently.
Seunghoon Na and | Advancements in computer technology have reshaped not only business operations but also household consumption. We estimate a business-cycle model disaggregating consumer IT and non-IT durable goods from the capital stock. We find that shocks to the supply of IT durables account for more than half of the variation in house- holds' real expenditure on IT durables. Furthermore, investment-specific productivity shocks drove nearly half of the rapid growth in household durable expenditures during the 2000s. Nonetheless, they have small influence over output dynamics, because unlike business investment goods, consumer durables do not add to the productive capital of the economy. The shocks become important when household IT goo.
