Abstract

The world economy is in the face of the strongest crisis of the last seventy years. This crisis is still ongoing, but authorities in many countries have already taken a series of measures to mitigate the effects. In this fight, the central banks are the first line. It is still too early to draw any lessons from the events taking place, but a reflection "sine ira et studio" over this experience is already possible. This paper aims to analyze this experience through the policies implemented by central banks to cope with the crisis.
