Global Economy’s Fault Lines: Market outlook in the Environment of regulatory uncertainty

5 March 2013
City of London

The global economy is still far from its full recovery after the devastating impact of the global financial crisis. The recovery of US economy remains fragile. The European economy is still struggling with the sovereign debt turmoil and the tail risk scenario for several Eurozone countries remains quite real. In this situation, implementation of the regulatory reform creates more market uncertainty and could become an additional risk driver for the financial industry and the macroeconomic situation.


Philosophical debates on:
– What the global economy ‘s “health” currently is and what fault lines should be monitored.
– How the current regulatory agenda can shape a landscape of the financial industry.
– What might be unintended consequences of the regulatory reform.
– What can be possible impacts of the regulatory reform on the rate and distribution of
economic growth.
