On the occasion of our 150th anniversary, our economic research-teams publish a new book 'Past and Future of Macroeconomic and Financial Markets', which offers an analysis of the financial instability inherent in capitalism and of the economic and financial developments of the last 150 years. Crisis after crisis, central banks have strengthened the foundations of their monetary policy. The book draws lessons from this situation, but also from the recent COVID-crisis.
What macroeconomic lessons can we learn from this crisis? To what extent will the economic recovery take a greener turn? What role can Europe play in the geopolitical showdown between America and China? What returns can investors reasonably expect in a world of very low or even negative interest rates?
Beyond a look at the past, this book also attempts to provide answers to the many questions that arise about the future from an economic and financial point of view, in a context of health crisis.
This book is a testimony to the quality of Degroof Petercam's macroeconomic and financial expertise. Its ambition: to contribute to the proliferation of economic thought and to a better and fairer world.
