GMF on the Road: IMF/World Bank springs meetings 2014

The Global Markets Forum kicked off our annual IMF/World Bank spring meetings coverage in Washington this past week with an engaging and varied guest list for our members, who were able to hear and participate in interviews with Institute of International Finance President and CEO Tim Adams and Federated Investor’s Geoffrey Pazzanese on global fiscal policy and markets; World Bank economist Hans Timmer on the Ukraine and Europe; and the Atlantic Council’s Jason Healey and Chris Brummer of Georgetown University on bitcoin and the future of digital currency. Lant Pritchett of Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and Breakingviews columnist Christopher Swann also helped shed insight on one of the most popular topics at the IMF and World Bank meetings this year — Rising Africa — and the main developmental and investing challenges.

Adams, a native of Kentucky, provided highlights of global fiscal and monetary policy, the U.S. Fed and even college basketball and the University of Kentucky’s “thrilling season.” Adams told the Global Markets Forum that he thinks now is the right time for the Fed to being the tapering process, while it may yet be premature for Europe and Japan.
