Over the past two years, and particularly since the intensification of
the global financial crisis in the fall of 2008, new information has
been released at a stunning pace. Between the breaking developments in
the market and the vast array of policy responses both domestic and
abroad, it has become increasingly challenging to understand the
complex and evolving response to the crisis.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has produced several timelines to
illustrate how events have unfolded. In both timelines, each event
entry contains a link that takes you to the original government
announcement or a recent news source for additional information.
domestic timeline begins in June 2007, showing the lead-up to and
development of the crisis as well as subsequent government responses.
The timeline is divided into three sections: Federal Reserve policy
actions, other policy actions, and market events. It provides an
overview of the major turning points and shows how policy has responded
to evolving market conditions. Timeline
international timeline focuses on G-7 responses to the crisis since
September 2008. It organizes announcements into four general
categories: bank liability guarantees, liquidity and rescue
interventions, unconventional monetary policy, and other market
interventions. The entries are color-coded to allow you to follow the
developments of each country individually. Timeline [pdf]
