The Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve will buy essentially unlimited quantities of US Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities, and will greatly increase corporate debt purchases, it announced today (March 23).

The Federal Open Market Committee also announced a wide range of radical new interventions and expanded many other emergency programmes. It will now directly buy new debt from large US firms and revive a programme from the global financial crisis to support debt in the student and car loan sectors.
