The State Of Global Monetary Policy In A Chart And A Map

Monetary policy is far from uniform around the world.

In the developed western economies, the US and the UK are slowly shifting from very loose policy to gradually tighter policy.

Meanwhile, central bankers in Russia, Ukraine, and much of Latin America are all about tighter monetary policy as they fight inflation and deteriorating local currencies.
