It is now common knowledge that the US fed's QE program has not worked in stimulating the US economy. Thanks to QE, US banks collectively hold about US$ 2.5 trillion in excess reserves which was meant to be lent out. The Fed, concerned about the effects of tapering its QE program, is now considering an option to charge banks a fee for holding the excess reserves. This could result in huge amount of lending by banks. What could be the effects of such a decision? Read on to find out more.(Safehaven)

Then read on the interesting views from the renowned bloggist and business editor...(Moneyscience)

What financial sector needs to learn from FMCG companies?
