The U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve, and the U.S. banking agencies have taken an array of steps to help stem the market fallout from the COVID-19 crisis. Some of these steps are modeled on the playbook deployed in the last financial crisis; many of these steps go beyond those taken in the last financial crisis as the issues permeate the real economy. This session covered:

  • Treasury programs, including legislative authority for emergency facilities
  • Federal Reserve facilities, including eligible collateral
  • Actions taken by the banking agencies to facilitate lending
  • Looking ahead to additional actions that may be taken
