Public Lecture Series: Neal Soss
Chief Economist, Investment Banking, Credit Suisse

Columbia Business School
Room 141
 

The world economies seem to be recovering from the financial crisis of 2008, but where are they headed? What opportunities will there be? What challenges will be faced by policy makers? What new forces are at work that we haven’t faced before? Unlike past recoveries we are confronted with unique challenges. In fact three big trends are interacting in ways that will impact all economies. Potential GDP growth rates are slowing in most large economies, populations of large nations with big GDPs are aging and the economic wellbeing of everyone is being impacted by inequality of income and wealth. Join us to understand these issues better and what policy challenges our leaders will have to address. Get a grip on what it means to you, your country and those around you as Neal Soss, Vice Chairman, Research at Credit Suisse explores many aspects of these three dynamics that will impact us all.

From Rome to Spain to Japan, policy mistakes on currencies, immigration, regulation, government oversight and intervention and other key issues, have had devastating impacts on nations and their people. What are our policy makers doing right and wrong? What are they avoiding that they should be doing? What are the implications for the future? This lecture will look at current policies and policy decisions our leaders should be making.
