Some probably feel the fear generated by possible actions of moral hazard (i.e., the taking risky actions knowing of the existence of a monetary authority that will come to the rescue in case of need), but probably, this change of vision in the central bankers will limit the uncertainty in markets that have confidence in the ability of those to deploy stabilizing mechanisms in cases where markets are in difficulties.
