iQ Summer 2012

The Great Balancing Act of 2012

Another sizzling hot evening with stimulating, indeed provocative ideas from Steen Jakobsen, Chief Economist at Saxo Bank, the evening’s sponsor. Steen shared his views on the three stages of a crisis and micro over macro. We had a lively evening with plenty of food for thought.

Mr. Jakobsen, well-known for his spirited, sometimes outspoken views (check out his blog), is a regular and highly-regarded commentator in local and international media. He focused on the competing macro-economic claims of:

  • Solvency vs. Liquidity                                   
  • Austerity vs. Growth
  • Performance vs. Capital Preservation
  • Unit Labour Costs vs. Innovation/Robots
