Reagan’s economic recovery better than Obama’s?


Roubini’s ‘Smart Beta’ Low Risk, High Return Bet

In an interview with FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney, world renowned economist Nouriel Roubini compared the differences in President Reagan’s recovery to President Obama’s -- and also offered some investment advice.

“There are a number of differences,” he said. “First of all, Obama entered the worst economic and financial crisis since The Great Depression, when he came to power the stock market was down 70 percent with [an] unemployment rate like we never had before. The economy was tanking, like during The Great Depression … initial starting point was very different.”

Nouriel Roubini predicts break-up of Eurozone unless Economic Growth is restored




 American economist Nouriel Roubini said on Wednesday that the Eurozone will break up unless the member states restore economic growth.
The New York University professor was speaking at a conference organised by IG Metall, Germany's biggest trade union, in Berlin.
He said that the Eurozone was not paying enough attention to job creation and GDP growth, because it was too focused on austerity.
"If I had to propose policies that change that historic road I would say we have to postpone the fiscal austerity in the periphery and do it more gradual, slower rather than faster. In countries like Germany where there is fiscal space instead of doing fiscal austerity now you have to postpone it and you have to do fiscal stimulus," he said.
Roubini went onto say that the fiscal compact will lead to weaker economic growth and deepen recession in the Euro area in 2013.
"And unless we restore that economic growth eventually this crisis is going to get worse and we will have a break up of the Eurozone," he said, "and unfortunately those who are resisting the most, those stimulative policies come in the core of the Eurozone and come in the government of Germany - this resisting policy that would try to restore job creation and job growth in the periphery of Eurozone. So unless we do that eventually the crisis could get worse rather than get better."

Even in normal times, individual and institutional investors alike have a hard time figuring out where to invest and in what. Should one invest more in advanced or emerging economies? And which ones? How does one decide when, and in what way, to rebalance one’s portfolio?

Obviously, these choices become harder still in abnormal times, when major global changes occur and central banks follow unconventional policies. But a new, low-cost approach promises to ease the challenge confronting investors in normal and abnormal times alike.

In the asset management industry, there have traditionally been two types of investment strategies: passive and active. The passive approach includes investment in indices that track specific benchmarks, say, the S&P 500 for the United States or an index of advanced economies or emerging-market equities. In effect, one buys the index of the market.
