For our 150th anniversary, our economic research teams are publishing a new book: 'Past and Future of Macroeconomics and Financial Markets', in which they offer an analysis of economic and financial developments over the past 150 years. Crisis after crisis, central banks have strengthened the foundations of their monetary policy. The book draws lessons from this situation, but also from the recent COVID crisis.
What macroeconomic lessons can we learn from this crisis? How much greener will the economic recovery become? What role can Europe play in the geopolitical showdown between America and China? What returns can investors reasonably expect in a world of very low or even negative interest rates?
In addition to looking at the past, this book also attempts to provide answers to the many questions about the future from an economic and financial point of view, in a context of health crisis. This book is a testimony to the quality of Degroof Petercam's macroeconomic and financial expertise. Its ambition: to contribute to the expansion of economic thought and to a better and fairer world.
