The Global Economy is Getting Stranger

Chatham House, London

Participants

Stephen King, Group Chief Economist, HSBC

Overview

HSBC Group Chief Economist Stephen King will argue that traditional frameworks for analysing economic developments no longer seem to be working. He will outline six characteristics which he believes indicate the global economy is ‘misbehaving’, ranging from deflation and negative nominal interest rates through to unemployment and wages. He will examine the implications of these oddities for monetary policy and exchange rates, within the context of currency wars and attempts by national policy-makers to dump deflationary problems onto other countries.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only. To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

This event is open to Major Corporate Members and Partners Organizations.
