“Unconventional Monetary Policy and the Yield Curve”

The Treasury yield curve has been importantly impacted by the current stance of monetary policy. On the one hand, with short-term interest rates so close to zero, and expected to remain so for at least over the next several quarters, asset pricing theory suggests that Treasury yields are now higher than would be suggested solely by underlying economic conditions. On the other hand, the Fed’s asset-purchase programs (quantitative easing and operation twist) have put downward pressure on longer-dated yields. We will discuss and attempt to quantify these potentially offsetting effects.
