Nouriel Roubini and Jason Cummins: Keeping Up with Change
These celebrated economists are known for sensing crucial signals before the rest of us, including those who occupy the seats of corporate and political power. We'll hear their contrasting views of the paths the global economy and capital markets will take in the coming year. Where do the trends point? Healthy growth or renewed solvency risk, and will either scenario unfold incrementally or fast and furiously? Is there life after central bank heroics? Will Western economies catch up with the go-go markets of recent years, or will the markets fall back to meet so-so conditions? How do sovereigns manage their debt-to-GDP ratios, and can policymakers extend their fiscal and monetary inventiveness? EMs and QE, bubbles and bailouts, profit growth and balance sheet cash, Roubini and Cummins will discuss whether and how the ends will meet in the world economy.
Nouriel Roubini is an American professor of Economics at New York University`s Stern School of Business and chairman of RGE Roubini Global Economics
