He monitors more than 40 major advanced and emerging economies worldwide, including the Philippines. For more information, please see www.differencegroup.net

Dr Steinbock`s presentation will focus on the new global prospects as the U.S. Feds tapering will intensify in the coming months, a sign of the reversal of economic policies that guided the world economy during the past half a decade. What will be the impact on the debt crises in the major advanced economies of the United States, Europe and Japan? How will the tapering and eventual interest rate hikes impact the large emerging economies, China and emerging Asia? Does the recent turmoil in the emerging markets herald the end or the resilience of their medium-term growth potential? What kind of strategic implications will these economic policies have globally and in Asia? These are the questions and issues that Dr. Steinbock will address in his presentation.
