Central banks try to prevent the global system from unraveling

By Michael R. Sesit Bloomberg News Published: August 26, 2007 PARIS: 'This financial crisis is far from over," says Rob Carnell, London-based chief international economist at ING Wholesale Banking.

  • Yes that’s right, it is up to everyone else to be in line with helicoptor ben and explain themselves if not. Classic US arrogance as they try to save their dire mismanaged economy.

    “Australia, China, Norway, South Africa and South Korea recently raised official interest rates. And the British, Swiss and Swedish central banks have neither cut borrowing costs nor signaled a desire to postpone expected rate increases.

    At a minimum, these central banks should signal that they are in accord with the Fed and, if not, be clear about why they are not.”
