Since the Global Financial Crisis started in 2008, a surprisingly large set of macroeconomic events have challenged our assumptions about the functioning of the World Economy. Advanced economies have ​weathered​  large crises, governments have come very close to default whilst their interest rates have turned negative for a significant share of all the assets being traded.

Emerging markets have gone from excitement to pessimism about their growth potential. Our fears about scarcity in the oil and commodity markets have turned into concerns about excessive supply and low prices. And financial markets keep trying to guess what is next for the World Economy. Antonio’s CV is here
