RGE Chairman Nouriel Roubini discusses U.S. growth amid EZ crisis and election-year political maneuvering. Covered by the call:
- We see further Fed easing coming by mid-2012, or early Q3 at the latest. We discuss the June Fed meeting and outlook for Fed monetary policy.
- We look at implications of the current policy environment for markets and growth: The U.S. recovery is vulnerable, consumption looks soft, and external risks are elevated.
- With the U.S. heading into elections, we see rising uncertainty regarding the fiscal drag and a possible debt ceiling battle, which will impact markets.
