What are your thoughts on EM equities at the moment? A lot of people were predicting an IPO boom for the BRICS at the start of the year. This hasn’t materalised. In the case of India and South Korea, it has been an IPO slump in H1. Why do you think that is and what does it say about investor appetite for new issues from BRICS?

I’m interested to know what ‘firepower’ you feel policymakers have at their disposal that they are not using – especially in smaller economies – to address some of the current economic challenges. What is the cost of this firepower?

Vicky

Give some sense as to timing.

my 401 allocations include:
(1) 25% in Large Cap Blend Equities
(2) 25% in Large Cap Value Equities
(3) 50% in PIMCO CORE PLUS BOND

Do you think this is a good hedging strategy?
Thanks in advance for your response

Paolo Giusto

Could this type of tax be used to replace the payroll, self-employment, and corporate income taxes? Would this help increase consumer demand?

Meanwhile, trillions in Monetary Base remain idle, Velosity continues to fall, & Duration of Unemployment continues to climb.

What adaptive thinking is required to depart from the Fed’s 1931 blindspot solution, who seem benign to market feedback,in order to target solutions where they are most effective for a debt liquidation cycle?

As you consider market fluctuations and other events in the years subseuqent to the book’s publication, is there anything that you would consider altering, or perhaps amplifying, in a second edition? Thanks.
