In the latest Interactive Financial Adviser debate, our panelists from Blackrock, Standard & Poor's, Threadneedle and Rathbones discussed the current Economic Outlook
2010 was a year of strong growth for the global economy, led by emerging markets. However, a faltering US economy and the debt crises in Greece and Ireland have overshadowed much of the positive news. The second round of QE has been met with a mixed response and some commentators believe a third round would be politically and financially difficult to justify. So what does 2011 have in store for investors? How will the debt crisis affect the Euro? Will the US economy recover or are further austerity measures necessary and will emerging markets continue to show strong growth?
The Economic Outlook panel includes:
Robert Quinn - European Equity Strategist, Standard & Poor's
Julian Chillingworth - Chief Investment Officer, Rathbone Unit Trust Management
Sunil Krishnan - Portfolio Manager, BlackRock
Leigh Harrison - Head of Equities, Threadneedle
