Deloitte Research Dialogues with Ira Kalish
Deloitte Research dialogues with Ira Kalish
Listen to new insights on the Global Economic Outlook Q2 2010.
As a follow up to the Q2 2010 Global Economic Outlook (GEO), Deloitte Research’s Dialogues caught up with Ira Kalish, Director of Global Economics for Deloitte Research, Deloitte Services LP, to provide additional insight on economic indicators.
In the 2Q 2010 issue of the Global Economic Outlook, Ira states:
“The global economic recovery is showing considerable strength in many countries, especially emerging markets where policymakers are already concerned about overheating. As such, business leaders should look toward the emerging world for new opportunities and a disproportionate share of growth. In addition, businesses should expect that currencies, commodities, and capital costs are likely to be relatively volatile as the global economy finds its way toward a new equilibrium. Therefore, strategies that take account of asset price risks will be important.”
Hear Ira address the following questions:
- Which economic indicators are you paying especially close attention to these days?
- In the latest edition of the Global Economic Outlook, you suggest that the United States is heading for strong growth and modest inflation through 2010. At the same time, many media sources seem less than optimistic about long-term stability. You seem awfully optimistic for a dismal scientist. Would you explain your rationale?
- In light of the recent economic news coming out of Greece, what’s your take on the short- and long-term stability of the Euro?
- The second quarter issue of GEO also takes on the topic of commodity prices. Commodity prices have been booming for the last 10 years. First of all, why have we seen such a steady increase, and second, will we continue to see more of the same in the medium and longer term?
- In the latest GEO, you paint a pretty optimistic outlook for China and India, despite some significant risks. Briefly, what are the biggest risks to economic growth in China and India, and what forces in the marketplace do you think will negate these risks?
