Macro Drivers of Asset Performance and Global TAA Strategy

This course provides a framework to formulate global asset allocation and trading strategies through the business cycle. It includes discussion of the main themes forming the background to global markets: efficacy of macro policies, including austerity, stimulus, monetary, and fiscal policies; ‘exit strategies’ from unconventional monetary policies; economic imbalances; the sovereign debt crisis; and the potential of higher inflation.

These themes are contrasted from both orthodox (neo-classical and neo-Keynesian) and heterodox (Modern Monetary Theory, post-Keynesian, and other) ideas that are driving current trends in investment decision making.
