On the Brink: Exceptional Circumstances, Exceptional Policies
With the deterioration seen in the US and European budget situation and economies, the two largest economic zones are navigating in unchartered territories and striving to find the most appropriate economic policy to address the pressing issues.
In the same time, Asian economies are losing steam on the combined effect of the global economic slowdown and much tighter economic policies at home.
This combination of factors is creating the most challenging economic and financial conditions in decades and triggers questions such as: would the US default? Should some countries leave the euro? Is the EMU heading for its demise? Will Asian economies be participating to the slowdown more than in 2008-2009?
Patrick ARTUS is the Chief Economist of NATIXIS, a member of the council of economic advisors to the French Prime Minister, and has been awarded the title of “Best Economist of the year”. He is also a member of the Board at Total and Ipsos.
He began his career in 1975 where his work included economic forecasting and modelisation. He then worked at the Economics Department of the OECD, and then became Head of Research at the ENSAE. Thereafter, he taught seminar on research at Paris Dauphine. He was Professor at a number of Universities (Dauphine, ENSAE, Centre des Hautes Etudes de l’Armement, Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, HEC Lausanne…), and is now Professor of Economics at Ecole Polytechnique and at University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. He combines these responsibilities with his research work.
