Donald Trump: The Kremlin Connection
by John P. Reisman published Oct 19, 2016
The fact that Donald Trump is making flirtatious remarks with Russia confuses and complicates matters for many people. The U.S. stance needs to hold to our values and for the freedom and liberty we have always supported. Trumps rhetoric undermines the notion of U.S. values at the State level, even though he is not president. Even as a candidate Trump is confusing our allies and bolstering our adversaries.

86th Annual BIS Report
by John P. Reisman published Jul 25, 2016 last modified Aug 28, 2016 11:45 PM
Summary: The global economy seems not as bad as rhetoric suggests while historically high risk factors remain unaddressed. Low global growth expectations and high debt narrows the range for policy maneuvering. There is an urgent policy need for sustainable expansion models as systemic inability to temper the boom-bust cycle and reduce the impact risks of debt fueled growth remains inadequately addressed. Their remains a need to complete financial reforms judiciously while insuring long term stability. Structural reforms are required. The market needs policies we will not regret in the future. Debt load and uncertainty continues to impact growth potentials by restraining investment. Fiscal policy also remains an essential focus as the relationship between banks and public finance creates an adverse feedback loop. A strong focus on building sufficient buffers in financial boom cycles enables space to repair balance sheets and stimulate demand if/when crisis occurs (countercyclical stance may help contain excessive growth in credit and asset prices). Policy critical to crisis prevention may come from removing tax provisions that unduly incentivize debt over equity; whereas current policies can lead to over-leveraging and increased fragility in market systems, which increases bust cycle risks; which are difficult to recover from. Banks are stronger but insurance and mutual fund regulation/supervision needs to be addressed as well.
