Lectures

Monetary Policy and Implications for the Markets

The Federal Reserve does not create a recession by raising rates; it can lay the groundwork for a crisis by unnecessarily lowering rates into negative territory and aggressively increasing its balance sheet. A recession is caused by a lack of investment and excessive risk-taking, often fueled by cheap money. Valuations soar simply because the amount of money increases faster than nominal GDP (gross domestic product). Daniel Lacalle, author of Escape from the Central Bank Trap, explains how monetary policy can be conducted to avoid excessive risk-taking and the creation of bubbles.

Energy Transition, Supply Security, and Competitiveness

Energy policy must adhere to the principles of security, diversification, and competitiveness. We must continue to bet on renewables without passing the cost onto companies and families. Subsidies should be transformed into tax incentives.
Solving the supply security problem by developing local energy sources - renewable, hydraulic, nuclear, and natural gas - and improving interconnection between countries to use "hubs" that reduce dependence on foreign suppliers, using storage facilities and regasification terminals. What can be done? Daniel Lacalle, author of The Energy World Is Flat, provides some ideas. Addressing energy from an industrial and technological perspective, not an ideological one. Electricity prices in Europe in 2003 were among the lowest in the OECD and today are among the highest. Why? Because the final bill for consumers was loaded with all sorts of fixed charges.

Global Macroeconomics and the Failure of Stimulus

The evidence of the last thirty years is clear. Aggressive stimulus policies leave a huge trail of debt, weaker growth, and a drop in real wages. The multiplier effect of public spending is virtually non-existent. Stimulus plans have inflated the size of the government, which in turn requires more dollars from the real economy to finance its activity. How can this situation be changed? Daniel Lacalle, author of Freedom or Equality and Escape From The Central Bank Trap, explains simple and effective ways.
