On Wednesday, February 17 we were delighted to host our latest Global Macro Call. We had three notable IIF speakers: Robin Brooks, Managing Director and Chief Economist, who covered the US fiscal stimulus and overheating debate, potential for longer-term US yields to go higher and implications for EM. Gene Ma, Head of China Research, who discussed his baseline forecast for China, including growth, inflation and the current account, plus his views on the domestic and external policy stance. Garbis Iradian, MENA Chief Economist, who reviewed his macro forecast for Saudi Arabia, including his assessment of the fiscal and external break-even prices of oil.
