Asset Price Bubbles and Challenges to Central Banks
The experience from the 2007 - 2009 global financial crisis was a wake-up call for central bankers. In the past decade, central bankers around the world have become more confident that they can control economic fluctuations including inflation. Many countries have adopted inflation targeting as their monetary policy framework. The success of inflation targeting in combating inflation led central bankers to believe not only that they have conquered inflation but also that they can even flatten business cycles, ups and downs of economic activities such as consumption and investment. Inflation was well managed around what many believe as a level close to price stability, business cycles were mitigated, and a few isolated incidences of financial crises responded well to active interventions undertaken by central banks and governments.
