Quantitative easing is the modern day version of printing money.

What the Fed will do is buy Treasury bonds and mortgage backed securities, this effectively increases the money supply and keeps interest rates on bonds low.

Printing Money and Quantitative Easing

Despite the possible threat of inflation, governments in Japan, US and now UK have resorted to using quantitative easing (a form of printing money) to deal with deep recessions and the prospect of deflation.

In a very serious recession, demand falls so much that it is possible to increase money supply without creating deflationary pressure. (If we consider quantity theory of money MV=PT. V, the  Velocity of circulation falls in recession, so we may need to increase money supply just to avoid deflation) So usually printing money causes inflation. But, in periods of falling velocity of circulation (number of times money changes hands), printing money doesn’t necessarily cause inflation. The credit crunch has caused a fall in the velocity of circulation.

How Does Quantitative Easing Work?

There are different forms of quantitative easing. But one form is where.

  1. The Central Bank creates reserves. This is creating money electronically. Basically, the Bank just decides to inflate its cash reserves by say £50bn.

  2. With this extra cash the Central Bank will buy a range of government gilts and private sector assets such as corporate bonds.

  3. Private banks sell their assets to the Central Bank and see an increase in their cash reserves. With these cash reserves they should be more willing to lend money.

  4. By buying government bonds, the Central Bank increases the value of bonds pushing long term interest rates down. This fall in long term interest rates also has a reflationary effect.

Does Quantitative Easing Work?

Some say Japan’s period of stagflation would have been worse without quantitative easing. But, it is early to say for US and UK.

Quantitative easing is risky. One issue is whether the Central Bank can remove the excess liquidity when the economy recovers.

Why Risk Printing Money when it could cause inflation?

The prospect of deflation is much worse than inflation. Deflation could make a minor recession into a prolonged depression. Deflation is very damaging to the economy because it discourages spending and increases the burden of debt.

Printing Money and effect on Exchange Rate.

Printing money reduces the value of your currency. Inflation reduces the value of domestic securities making international investors leave the economy.

Quantitative easing

Quantitative easing is the creation of new money by a central bank, and its injection into the banking system. It is essentially printing money; the deliberate expansion of the total amount of money in an economy.[1] Money is now generally created electronically, as opposed to physically being printed.[1] The aim is to increase the amount of deposits in private banks so that, by way of deposit multiplication, they can increase the money supply by increasing debt (lending).

‘Quantitative’ refers to the supply of money; ‘easing’ refers to reducing the pressure on banks.[2] A central bank can do this by using the new money to buy government bonds (Treasury securities in the United States) in the open market, or by lending the new money to deposit-taking institutions, or by buying assets from banks in exchange for currency, or any combination of these actions. These have the effects of reducing interest yields on government bonds, and reducing interbank overnight interest rates, and thereby encourage banks to loan money to higher interest-paying bodies.

In layman’s terms the central bank creates new money and through the various purchases described above this new money is deposited in accounts in private banks. The private banks can then in turn create new money themselves through Fractional Reserve Banking (not printing it) in a process known as ‘deposit multiplication’. The US Federal Reserve‘s now out of print booklet Modern Money Mechanics explains the process.

Quantitative easing was used notably by the Bank of Japan (BOJ) to fight domestic deflation in the early 2000s.[3] More recently during the global financial crisis of 2008, policies announced by the US Federal Reserve under Ben Bernanke to counter the effects of the crisis have been likened to quantitative easing coupled with the issuance of new debt on the US federal balance sheet. Also the United Kingdom is currently using quantitative easing, as an additional arm of its monetary policy, to alleviate its own financial crisis.[4][5][6]

In Japan’s case, the BOJ had been maintaining short-term interest rates at close to their minimum attainable zero values since 1999. With quantitative easing, it flooded commercial banks with excess liquidity to promote private lending, leaving them with large stocks of excess reserves, and therefore little risk of a liquidity shortage.[7] The BOJ accomplished this by buying more government bonds than would be required to set the interest rate to zero. It also bought asset-backed securities, equities, and extended the terms of its commercial paper purchasing operation. [8]

Willem Buiter has proposed a terminology to distinguish quantitative easing, or an expansion of a central bank’s balance sheet, from what he terms qualitative easing, or the process of a central bank adding riskier assets onto its balance sheet:

Quantitative easing is an increase in the size of the balance sheet of the central bank through an increase it is monetary liabilities (base money), holding constant the composition of its assets.

Asset composition can be defined as the proportional shares of the different financial instruments held by the central bank in the total value of its assets. An almost equivalent definition would be that quantitative easing is an increase in the size of the balance sheet of the central bank through an increase in its monetary liabilities that holds constant the (average) liquidity and riskiness of its asset portfolio.

Qualitative easing is a shift in the composition of the assets of the central bank towards less liquid and riskier assets, holding constant the size of the balance sheet (and the official policy rate and the rest of the list of usual suspects). The less liquid and more risky assets can be private securities as well as sovereign or sovereign-guaranteed instruments. All forms of risk, including credit risk (default risk) are included.[9]
