In the course of a wide ranging conversation, Adam Posen covered behavioural issues affecting the household sector in the USA, the strongly dis-inflationary outlook after the recession, the impact of the worrying tensions between the US & China, the unfortunate lack of global policy co-ordination, the various options facing the major central banks, the headwinds to trend productivity growth in the coming decade, and what is priced into financial markets against this backdrop.
Adam is President of a well-known think tank, the Peterson Institute for International Economics. From 2009-12, he served as a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee. His research focuses on macro-economic policy in the industrial democracies, G-20 economic relations, the resolution of financial crises, and central banking issues.
