Where is the Global Market Heading to Now? Nouriel Roubini on the Japanese, U.S. & World Economies

Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 6:00 pm, at Japan Society


New York, NY - As most advanced economies continue to be afflicted by high unemployment and low GDP growth, central banks have resorted to increasingly unconventional monetary policy to deal with these problems. However, some have warned about potential bubbles forming in advanced economies and emerging markets due to these policies. In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has rolled out his new economic policies and structural reforms with the cooperation of the Bank of Japan, which have started to bring new life to the Japanese economy. In the U.S., the recent appointment of Janet Yellen as Chair of the Federal Reserve has raised questions as to whether she will continue the unconventional policies of her predecessor Ben Bernanke.

In Where is the Global Market Heading to Now? Nouriel Roubini on the Japanese, U.S. & World Economies, Nouriel Roubini, Professor at NYU Stern School of Business and Chairman of Roubini Global Economics, discusses his outlook for the world economy, with special attention paid to the international impact of Abenomics and Federal Reserve policy. Moderated by Daiwa Capital Markets America Holdings Inc.'s Keiko Tashiro, the discussion takes place Tuesday, February 25 at Japan Society.
