Should you be Scared of Inflation?
May 27 | 12:30 - 13:00
Europe has not seen any real inflation for the last thirty years. Are the conditions right for a comeback? If you are German, especially, or Dutch or Brazilian you may be afraid, very afraid.
We are, economically, in uncharted territory. Never before have we had interest rates so low for so long. Compounding this is quantitative easing - the genie escaping from the bottle.
This talk starts by looking inflation and how it may hurt you. It moves onto the dynamics of inflation and the potential impact of quantitative easing. It closes with a focus on the current inflation outlook.
Through the looking glass The Dutch economy into 2022 June 10 | 12:30 - 13:00
The Netherlands is the European country most exposed to international economic events. This exposure, along with challenges in Europe, means that businesspeople need constant vigilance. Let your guard down and you will pay the price.
This talk discusses the outlook for the Dutch economy for the next twelve months. It does this within a defined framework. This framework has two benefits. First it gives you the structure to constantly update the economic outlook. Second, it gives a constructive place to debate outlook conclusions.

First in a structured framework that includes the factors that the European Central Bank takes into account when considering interest rate changes. The second is by looking at Capital Markets and the signals from yields in these markets.
As with the talk on the outlook for the Dutch economy, this framework has two benefits. First it gives you the structure to constantly update the interest outlook. Second, it gives a constructive place to debate outlook conclusions.
