The central banks of the three developed economies – the U.S., the Eurozone and Japan – have expanded their balance sheets tremendously over the past decade. More than $12.2 trillion of financial assets now sit idle on their balance sheets. One of the consequences is that the central bank’s traditional toolkit has become obsolete. Central bankers count on one tool and one tool only. However, the effectiveness of this tool, especially in times of high and increasing inflation, is completely shrouded in mystery. Balance sheet reduction is one possible way to shrink the balance sheet so that traditional tools might be used, but how? And what are the consequences?
