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 Megan Greene explains why the maps are outdated and updates them to provide some ideas on how policymakers and businesses can address inequality and to highlight what the world will look like if they don’t.
