SS6 : Policy Mix and yield curve

I refer to Exhibit 20 on page 69 of CFAI text. Can anyone explain the relationship between yield curve and the monetary/fiscal policies ? Any tips to remember this QUICKLY on exam will be of great help. Thanks!


Both are loose - yield curve upward sloping Both are tight - yield curve downward sloping Monetary is tight, fiscal is loose - flat yield curve Monetary is loose, fiscal is tight - moderately upward sloping.
