Outlook for Interest Rates

June 11, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM



Global pandemic has put extraordinary downward pressure on economies.  This pressure has been met by aggressive monetary and fiscal policy responses of central banks and governments around the world.  These developments have had enormous effects on interest rates both public and private.  The discussion will explore the nature of the economic dislocation and its impact on interest rates in the short and long term.  Questions such as, is monetary policy now accommodative will be discussed?   What will happen to rates/yields when economies recover?  What will the policy response be as economies improve and what will be its implications for long-term interest rates.  Ultimately, will the US and the world escape Japanification?

Please register for this event and you will receive a calendar invite and access information the morning of the meeting.
