Bloomberg: Megan Greene’s Path to Becoming an ‘Accidental Economist’
When economists find consensus on when a recession will hit, you can be reasonably sure it won’t fall then. Economic forecasting is a tricky business; they say the key to success it to forecast often. Megan Greene is unafraid to have out of consensus views and has a fantastic forecasting track record. She examines high frequency economic data, structural trends, global flows, political factors and policy developments to determine the state of the global recovery and to highlight risks and opportunities for businesses and markets.
Wealth and income inequality is one of the greatest economic, social and political challenges of our time. Increasing gaps between the haves and have-nots have eroded the social contract in a number of developed countries and caused many to question whether capitalism is really working for them. New disruptors such as technology and globalization have changed the drivers of wealth, wages and growth, but economists are still clinging on to old frameworks to understand these factors. The territory and the map are far apart—it’s no wonder economists have been getting lost. Megan Greene explains why the maps are outdated and updates them to provide some ideas on how policymakers and businesses can address inequality and to highlight what the world will look like if they don’t.
"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Megan Greene on two separate occasions for some of the largest and most prestigious annual events hosted by Pensions & Investments. Most recently, Megan was featured as P&I’s keynote speaker and provided a well-rounded global look at factors impacting the U.S. economy such as: consumer confidence vs. business confidence and issues around supply and demand. She examined how our nation’s fiscal policies, combined with slow growth and low inflation rates, and subsequent lackluster financial conditions, were all creating stagnation in our economy. Megan delivered a timely presentation on a day that the stock market was crashing, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe. She was quick to include the latest statistics and implications as they related to investments within fixed income and equities, explaining how each were part of the overall recession risk framework. Megan was a true professional throughout the planning process of two of the most important P&I conferences and it was such an honor to work with her. To this day, she remains one of the smartest economists I know and I would welcome an opportunity to work with her over and over again since she is such a knowledgeable and reliable resource of information. Megan has fantastic delivery skills and comfortable stage presence – a true professional!"
