Does monetary policy affect inequality? Evidence from the US before and after the financial crisis.

My undergraduate dissertation sought to provide empirical evidence to state whether monetary policy has any effects on inequality. To do this I ask the subsequent questions: Does unconventional monetary policy affect inequality? And does conventional monetary policy affect inequality? I use American macroeconomic data prior to and after the financial crisis to see how monetary policy stance could affect inequality. I conclude that my analysis shows no direct empirical relationship between monetary policy and inequality.
