The U.S Federal reserve today announced that it will taper back another 10 million of asset purchases; from it’s previous 75 to 65 million USD as of todays FOMC meeting. Market Watch has more on this story here.
So 2014 is up and running and it’s back to business as usual at school. Our current course is an introductory course in macro economics which started in the begining of December and during our two week Christmas break from scheduled classes, which in all honesty set me back a bit. It has taken some effort to get back to it again, but nevertheless i feel optimistic about the exam on Friday (13:30 to 19:30 which is a pretty crazy schedule for a Friday! ;-))
We had the presentation of our project in this course earlier this week as well, which went pretty well. Me and and a study buddy of mine were handed the task of analyzing the Swedish government debt from a right wing perspective, and suggest ways of administrating it in the future. Fun and educational for sure (possibly only for aspiring economists though ;-))
