Its ubiquity reflects the central banks’ unprecedented role in both stabilizing economic growth and supporting asset prices since the end of the global financial crisis. But the question also reflects disappointment. Global growth remains frustratingly fragile. Inflation has stubbornly fallen short of central bank targets.
