College Finance Homework Help


#1

Long time lurker whose first post will be a homework question..

Anyway, senior finance major and need two answer these two questions.

1) Why the zero-lower-bounds on interest rate can be a serious problem?
2) Why price and output stability do not ensure financial stability?

Any finance whizzes out there know how to answer either of them. Completely stuck, thanks for the help in advance.

Similarly, if you’re a believer in Keynsian economics, then the government can’t keep offering more money to prop things up once the interest rate reaches 0.
