This site has one main goal: to make the workings of key central banks around the world intelligible to readers. Central bankers tend to be secretive about why they do what they do. Brief cryptic statements are all that you’ll get most of the time, and if you’re lucky. Not surprisingly, central banks tend to be viewed with heavy suspicion, especially because their decisions, which affect millions around the world, are taken by officials not elected by the general population.
This site hopes to inform and educate readers on everything central to the world’s financial system. And that means understanding the actions that central banks take from time to time. We’ll give you a view on whether they’re good, bad or ugly.
