Global Capital Markets: At a Crossroad

Global Capital Markets: At a Crossroad

October 18 at 8:00 am PDT/11:00 am EDT 

The 2021 Milken Institute Global Conference will open with welcoming remarks from Milken Institute CEO, Michael Klowden, followed by a presentation from Harris Poll CEO, John Gerzema on the release of The Milken Institute Harris Poll 2021 Listening Project, examining priority issues of global citizenry and identifying the types of business leaders we need to both drive growth and foster a more just world.

These opening remarks will be followed by a panel discussion on Global Capital Markets.

Last year saw one of the deepest and shortest recessions in history. However, although extraordinary fiscal and monetary stimulus was unavoidable to dampen the economic burden of the pandemic, it has rekindled the debate of "How much is too much?" After more than a decade of almost constant accommodative monetary policy, is there a way back to markets independent of stimulus? What is the role of capital markets in addressing societal issues? And are there solutions to growing dislocations and divides?
