Topic: What Year Is It?
Speaker: Michael Santoli, Associate Editor, Barron’s
Michael Santoli, columnist for Barron’s, will focus on placing the current economic and investing cycle in proper context. To do so requires looking toward similar periods in the past. Is this year and the one soon to come more like 2005, 1938, 1995 or 2008–2012;or none of these years at all? And what would each mean for the risks and opportunities in today’s markets? Also, why do stock and bond markets often diverge from visible economic conditions? Where are the risks and opportunities in today’s investment environment?
