Noticing the adoption of unconventional measures of monetary policy in major currency areas on the one hand and continuing globalisation and integration of international financial markets on the other hand, we analyse the linkages between monetary policy and asset prices. Apart from excess asset valuation, we consider second order dynamics (uncertainties, tail risks) as specific threats to...
