Incredible central bankers
The superheroes of 2012 have been the central bankers - with Super Mario at the European Central Bank pledging to do whatever it takes to save the euro and Ben Bernanke providing quantitative easing to infinity and beyond. FT columnist John Plender and Ralph Atkins, capital markets editor, analyse the dangers of this unprecedented central bank action to stave off a 1930s-style slump.
