35 year track record.
We have an almost 35 year track record in making bold, off consensus-calls at major inflection points in economic, political and market cycles. For example, building on our global macro and financial analysis to find imbalances and fragilities, we identified the coming storm of the Global Financial Crisis – identifying the crucial turning point in the cycle and calling the stock market bottom as recovery began. One of our key themes is Decarbonomics - The economics and policy of reducing reliance on greenhouse gas (carbon) emissions in energy production, manufacturing, transportation and other sectors of the economy and the drive for green energy and net-zero emissions.

2023 Outlook: Recession Deep Fake

The threat to asset markets in 2023 is not Fed overtightening but that the world’s central bank has thrown in the towel too soon

New Era of Macro Volatility

Inflation will become more volatile and recessions more frequent. Risk premia in financial markets should rise, especially in bonds, which have been slow to adjust. But it is not all bad news – we could end up with shorter, less pronounced credit cycles and fewer systemic financial disasters.

When is $80T debt not a problem?

Mismatched-funding chains created by 2010s policy distortions are the greatest threat to global financial stability, both pre- and post- Fed pivot. Chains starting with Asian holders of dollar reserves, running through Japanese financials in OTC FX derivatives, into the Caymans and back to China make us highly skeptical of the long-term value of the RMB
