Citation Zheng Yan. The Impact and Issues of Portfolio Rebalancing Channel in Quantitative Easing During COVID-19. AEMPS (2023) Vol. 44: 227-231. DOI: 10.54254/2754-1169/44/20232237.
As the largest black swan event in recent years, the COVID-19 has affected the development of the global economy. As the world's largest economy and one of the countries with the most severe epidemic, the United States has suffered a heavy economic blow. To promote economic recovery, the Federal Reserve has adopted a series of loose policies. This includes the most typical quantitative easing policy. Through literature research, this paper mainly analyzes the impact of the portfolio rebalancing channel in quantitative easing on the US economy. Quantitative easing policies can promote economic recovery to a certain extent, and the channel of portfolio rebalancing is also feasible in theory, but there are uncertainties in the factors affecting the economic environment. When solving the problem of high inflation caused by QE and active fiscal policy, it will have a negative impact on the current economy and enterprises. The government also needs to further consider the balance of economic development.
