Episode 5: Top risks with Deloitte’s Chief Economist

Regulated Radio podcasts

In our latest episode, our host Scott Martin and Deloitte’s Chief Economist, Ian Stewart, scan the horizon and look at the some of the top economic threats facing financial markets today. From the latest macroeconomic developments around the world, to the risks keeping central bankers and financial regulators up at night. Tune in to hear more!

4 key questions we answer in this episode:

  • What should financial players make of slowing growth in China and difficult economic conditions in the Eurozone?
  • How uncertain is the outlook for monetary policy going forward?
  • What big risks are central bankers and financial regulators most concerned about this year?
  • Are there underappreciated economic risks that we should start paying more attention to?

Most recessions occur because economies run out of spare capacity, growth slows and you get some sort of financial or balance sheet crisis exacerbating a downturn. I think there’s going to be a big focus on whether we see some of these risk factors emerge in the global economy in 2019.
