  • But how far should the public sector go in defining the terms of maturity transformation?. It would be reassuring to imagine that underlying saving and investment propensities of the private sector define the real interest rate in normal times. Keynes threw some doubt on this classical view. In addition, the fact is that government policies nowadays dominate the terms of maturity transformation in modern economies. Very large government debt defines the yield curve.

  • Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is perceived as an enigma, a man whose message is cloaked behind a wall of obtuse language. The markets spend an inordinate amount of time trying to break down that wall, hoping they might at last find the Holy Grail on Greenspanisms. But for most, understanding Greenspan to the point where both he and the Fed are even semi- predictable, and hence, tradable, is an elusive challenge. Greenspan is therefore seen as a distraction to investors who would rather focus on companies and industry fundamentals than monetary policy.

Or it could arrange for channel deepening at ports to be planned alongside the bridge replacements required to ensure new and larger freight vessels can access harbors.
