Example text

As debt issuance became the propelling force for rent-seeking objectives, the creation of ad hoc collaterals became equally important. indd 19 25/02/2011 14:25 20 Credit, money and macroeconomic policy packaging of collaterals into complex strata of securities became an art in itself. Such packaging was necessary in order to fill and give substance to securities for which there were no continuous markets. Thus mortgagebacked securities (MBS) and other asset-backed securities (often backed by other non-hard securities), were then structured into collateralized debt obligations (CDOs).

The Federal Reserve and ECB managed to avoid such a credit crunch by providing emergency liquidity and/or lowering the discount rate (at the cost, in the case of the Fed, of depreciating the external value of the dollar). The Bank of England refused to follow their example, and the UK experienced a credit crunch. Then not only was the Bank of England forced to provide additional liquidity (in what The Economist (2007b) termed ‘a breathtaking volteface’), but the provision, after the fact, of full government insurance for all deposits at Northern Rock created a more serious precedent for moral hazard than just having a central bank act as a lender of last resort.

Fourth, the recent speculative bubbles have not been accompanied by a wage and price inflation.
