Let’s Listen to The Economist’s Zanny Minton Beddoes

I always appreciate meeting, literally and figuratively, new people along our global economic landscape. Today I meet Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor of The Economist. Ms. Beddoes provides clear insights and perspectives on the challenges before us as we collectively navigate the economic landscape. The greatest challenge before the ‘wizards in Washington’ is when and how to exit the massive fiscal and monetary supports currently utilized to prop the economy and markets.

I hope you find Ms. Beddoes’ comments helpful in framing this critical question. I did.

    It is interesting that they talk about financial growth as if it was a good thing. I contend that it is finance that brought us down versus manufacturing.

    In his books, Kevin Phillips documents how in the case of Spain, the Netherlands, England and now us declined in terms of a nation when the financial sector overcame the manufacturing sector. Now they want to shift financial growth to China. I suspect China is a bit smarter than that.

    Me thinks that the financial people have trouble seeing beyond the green eye shades.
