SGC Business Luncheon on "What Higher Fed Rates Mean For the Eurozone and Asia"

With Chief Economist of Commerzbank, Dr Joerg Kraemer
Description

About the Business Luncheon:

THE US ECONOMY IS RECOVERING AND THE FED WILL RAISE ITS INTEREST RATES

Dr. Jörg Krämer, Chief Economist of Commerzbank, highlights what this could mean for the Eurozone and Asia. The ECB will do everything to shield the sluggish euro-zone economy from higher US rates - especially as many of the monetary union’s underlying problems remain unsolved as demonstrated by the ongoing Greek crisis. For Asia, a tightening of the US monetary policy means that external funds are less easily available. Downside risks also stem from the fact that private sector debt had risen markedly in recent years. Dr. Krämer will also give his perspective for bond yields and currencies.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Jörg Krämer is member of the Shadow ECB Council. Prior to joining Commerzbank he was Chief Economist of Bayerische Hypo- and Vereinsbank in Munich. He started his career at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, where he received his PhD.
