WILL THE MASSIVE POLICY RESPONSE HALT THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC FREEFALL?

April 24, 2020

NEW THIS WEEK
We are witnessing massive policy responses of historic proportions. The fiscal and monetary reaction to the COVID-19 shut down of economies around the world has been unprecedented in its size and speed. How effective will it be and who stands to benefit from the stimulus? Who is at most risk of being left behind?

We have measured answers from a major player in resolving the Global Financial Crisis a decade ago. John Lipsky, who was the First Deputy Managing Director at the IMF from 2006-2011 during the height of the crisis joins us with his in-depth analysis of the policy response then and now and perspective on current risks. He raises serious concerns about the economic health of southern Europe, Italy in particular and emerging market countries as well.  It’s a heads up for the international exposure of our portfolios.

SARGEN & LIPSKY: THE DECLINE OF U.S. FINANCIAL DOMINANCE

September 7, 2012

The Decline of U.S. Financial Dominance

The Effectiveness or Lack Thereof of Federal Reserve’s Monetary Policy

It has been four years since the start of the worst financial crisis in the post war era. It feels like a lifetime to me. Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy in September 2008, tipping the world into a systemic financial meltdown which we have been recovering from ever since. It’s helpful to step back every once and while and see how far we have come since the market lows of March 2009, when the S&P closed under 700. It has more than doubled since then, but oh what a ride it has been!
