Symposium series on investment – Olivier Blanchard on US inflation… (listen)
In this time of profound change for societies, economies and cultures, our goal is to provide investors with thought leadership on the factors shaping our era of transformation and the impact on financial markets and investment.
In our new Investment Symposium Series, we present a reflection on the big issues, including the challenges of climate change, social inequalities, shifting economic sands and new technologies. We also highlight the developments in China, the world’s fastest growing large economy home to many innovative companies.
For this series, we are building on the annual Investment Symposium, a key event where investment professionals from BNP Paribas Asset Management reflect on the themes that shape the future and a place where high-level external speakers throw a new light on the challenges, testing our convictions and diversifying our reflections.
In this podcast, Olivier Blanchard, Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, argues that the US Federal Reserve has misinterpreted US inflationary pressures and warns that rapid normalization of monetary policy is needed to maintain financial stability.
