Nouriel Roubini will not be identified for his optimism. A perennial plant that bears the nickname of Dr. Doom, Roubini isn’t optimistic. That stated, he accurately referred to as the housing bubble earlier than the worldwide monetary disaster and his evaluation, although not often optimistic, has proven outstanding accuracy over time.
So when Roubini is speaking, it's value listening. With that in thoughts, we spoke to him earlier than he appeared on the SALT convention in Could so as to get his perspective on plenty of market phenomena, together with the cryptographic craze, the present state of affairs relating to financial coverage and international progress, and so on.
You will see that beneath a transcript of our dialogue, barely condensed and modified.
CFA Institute: Mr. Roubini, once you spoke to us in 2015, about six years after the monetary disaster, the main focus was on unconventional financial coverage and the way it had not but been doable to take action. Guarantee a sturdy international restoration. How have your views advanced since?
Nouriel Roubini: Since 2015, the worldwide financial system has been via durations of optimistic and accelerating progress and slowing down durations throughout which progress is slowing. There have been two episodes of danger. One was in August-September 2015, and the opposite in January and February 2016. In each episodes, China raised issues, and within the second, issues about slowing US progress , signaling a slowdown in Europe, the Brexit. worries and decrease oil costs.
And in every of those two episodes, there was a correction within the international inventory market of quick length, however fairly important, related to a slowdown. We’re then in an enlargement after which a slowdown once more within the first half of 2016 after which [more of a slowdown] from mid-2016 with some clouds and worries concerning the US, China, oil, unhealthy insurance policies and the impacts of Brexit. As soon as these clouds had been eliminated, for a 12 months and a half or two, the world financial system was booming.
The 12 months 2017 was really a 12 months of world enlargement, marked by a synchronized acceleration of progress in the US, Europe, Japan and most rising markets. However final 12 months, this enlargement turned much less synchronized. The US and China continued to expertise comparatively sturdy progress, however Europe and the euro zone, Japan, a gaggle of rising markets, had been fragile.
This recap brings us again to 2019, which ought to nonetheless be a 12 months of optimistic progress, however I’d name it a synchronized slowdown. Most main areas of the world are slowing down now. A few of them simply have potential, however lots of them, just like the eurozone, can really begin spitting at one thing decrease than their potential financial progress degree.
The excellent news is probably that we do not need a world recession, however since 2015, we might have greater than a interval of 18 to 24 months most of 1 12 months. a real international enlargement, from the center of 2016 to the center or the primary half. Since then, these are durations of poor progress, or slowdown. And now, we’re on this part of growing the worldwide cycle.
The CFA Institute was one of many founders of the Systemic Threat Board shortly after the worldwide monetary disaster. Since then, some systemic protections have been put in place, however others have been reinstated. What’s your catch?
Let's begin by recognizing that because the international monetary disaster, among the dangers inherent in conventional monetary establishments, resembling banks, have been decreased. General, there may be more money, extra capital and fewer leverage. Conventional financial institution depositors at the moment are safer after implementing reforms to restrict the risk-taking habits of regulated monetary establishments. However two issues have occurred that could possibly be a component of concern over time.
First, as you identified, the clock of regulation comes again to say that we’ve got been over-regulated after the worldwide monetary disaster and that we must always now scale back a few of these rules. This course of is underway in the US with the Trump administration. Dodd-Frank laws and rules embrace steps that recommend giving extra flexibility even to regulated monetary establishments to take extra dangers.
And secondly, the final disaster was an issue of extreme indebtedness within the family sector, subprime and different mortgages. And banks, this time, are beginning to see excesses within the company sector. . . . And among the dangers have shifted from extra regulated banks to much less regulated or unregulated monetary establishments, referred to as ghost banks.
What worries me is that the pendulum might go too far within the path of sunshine regulation and depends excessively on market self-discipline. Over time, if a restoration happens at any level within the credit score cycle, over-credit can put in danger a variety of economic establishments.
The place do you particularly see the credit score accumulating dangerously?
Extreme debt is actually current within the enterprise sector. These excesses are manifested in three alternative ways. The rise in leveraged loans and lite alliance is a kind of areas of potential danger.
Second, the big accumulation of high-yield bonds and their pricing when it comes to unfold could also be too small relative to their danger potential.
And third, even within the funding class, there may be now this phenomenon. . . Fallen angels: companies that had been beforehand of superior high quality, however whose monetary state of affairs has deteriorated and whose score is within the decrease a part of this high-yielding dividing line, with the danger of degradation at a grade even decrease than the funding grade at a excessive yield waste. And pricing, once more, will not be mirrored in the truth that prime quality firms weren’t searching for prime quality.
Now, optimists say that the debt indicators for the company sector are sound. Debt service ratios are low as each short- and long-term charges have elevated, however solely steadily. And folks say that the profitability of the company sector continues to be excessive and that progress stays, for the US, above potential. GDP progress is between 2% and a couple of.5%, in response to your forecasts. So, so long as the financial system continues to develop and income are first rate, the debt service is not going to matter.
This optimism could be justified now, however what occurs if there are shocks? A slowdown in progress, for instance, or a slowdown in profitability, or a widening of credit score spreads? For instance, widening spreads might shock markets, as was the case in early 2016, when excessive yield spreads went from 300 to 900 in a couple of months, or what occurred with leveraged loans within the fourth quarter of 2018. Then all of the sudden, one thing that appeared sustainable in a set of economic financial situations turns into much less sustainable.
We’re not but on the final stage of this re-use of credit score within the company sector, however it’s the starting of a big accumulation of vulnerability. If an financial slowdown occurred, it will be very detrimental to the debt. For my part, we’re beginning to enter a extra harmful space right here.
Talking of potential vulnerabilities, do you worry elevated indexation within the markets? Do you see systemic implications arising from such funding approaches?
The investments induced by the substitution of lively administration are, in my view, optimistic. It’s broadly documented that more often than not, lively managers underperform long-term web commissions. Personally, most of my investments in these index funds symbolize a really low weighted common payment of zero.10% every year. So, why ought to I pay 1% to 1.5% or 2% plus 20 for issues that basically don’t give me concrete outcomes over time? Many of those investments are basically leveraged beta. This is the reason many small traders, even refined, are shifting on this path.
Furthermore, even when an financial slowdown led to a big and harmful correction, I have no idea if passive traders might be extra impulsive than lively traders of their makes an attempt to promote their positions. You could possibly even say that some passive traders might have extra inertia. Passive traders have a tendency to not time the market and, I’d say, are much less prone to exacerbate market cycles.
Some are involved concerning the danger of value discovery represented by the proliferation of passive investments. My reply is that there’s a lot of passive funding, however there are sufficient lively managers, lively analysts and different activists. These have a transparent motivation, so I don’t see on this development of passive investing an actual systemic danger or one thing that influences value discovery an excessive amount of.
Within the credit score sector, nonetheless, the IMF has reported a phenomenon [International Monetary Fund], BIS [Bank for International Settlements]and others who say we’ve got had huge debt points, each from the private and non-private sectors. These devices should not typically traded on the inventory alternate. They are usually illiquid and over-the-counter. Thus, during the last three years, an increasing number of lenders specialised in credit score have specialised in direct loans.
If there was to be a risk within the credit score market, then all of the sudden, for instance, the high-yield or leveraged borrowing widened, if lots of people had been dumping this credit score, then you can have the equal of a financial institution. Which means that some firms should promote these belongings in an illiquid market, additional miserable the value of the underlying securities. This results in additional enlargement of the road of credit score and might trigger systemic harm if a part of them escalates.
One other concern is that the underlying is extraordinarily illiquid, however passive funds often supply their traders instant money, permitting you to promote your place as if it's an account. banking. That is extra just like the repetition of one thing that resembles the mismatch of conventional financial institution maturities. It’s subsequently an space that, mixed with systemic danger and poor pricing of a few of these credit score devices, could possibly be a supply of pressure if the credit score cycle recovers.
Are there market segments that deliver out your inside, Dr. Doom? Are there market assumptions which might be illusory?
Properly, I all the time attempt to be lifelike. I’m neither unfavourable nor pessimistic nor optimistic. I apply a fairly refined evaluation to what's happening on the planet and the market after which I attempt to do it proper. And, in fact, nobody succeeds on a regular basis.
Are we close to a recession now? Ten years after the disaster, there may be quite a lot of concern that the standard US cycle doesn’t final for many years. My reply is that expansions don’t die a pure demise. Australia could be an exception with optimistic progress now for 25 years. Expansions often finish due to financial or monetary vulnerabilities exacerbated by varied political errors. We’re not prone to face a world recession this 12 months, however there may be an extreme buildup of debt in the US.
And it's not only a enterprise in the US. There may be additionally an accumulation of family debt, together with scholar loans and automobile loans. And even housing exhibits some weak point given the rise in mortgage charges and modifications in tax laws that make housing funding much less advantageous.
After which, there may be additionally an accumulation of debt around the globe. For instance, I keep watch over Chinese language personal debt, residence loans, in addition to state and native governments. Some rising markets are closely indebted, each within the personal and the general public sectors. In Europe, there are nonetheless international locations the place public debt, if one other financial downturn happens, could possibly be a supply of great stress. And the primary nation that involves my thoughts is Italy. His authorities is pursuing populist insurance policies that can finally result in recession. Debt dynamics might additionally change into unsustainable.
General, there may be an excessive amount of personal and public debt, international and home. We’re lucky that, even when leverage is excessive, debt service ratios appear manageable because of low rates of interest. Nevertheless, the method of coverage normalization has begun and rates of interest might steadily improve. And regardless that some authorities bond yield choices stay low, the credit score hole between private and non-private belongings might start to widen. This could occur all of the sudden if the market is anxious about financial fundamentals or geopolitical dangers. If slowly, slowly, we could possibly be making ready for the subsequent financial downturn. Selecting the precise time at which the disaster will happen is nearly not possible, however we aren’t residing in a protected world. We launched the can on the highway in some ways.
One might say that central bankers have launched the proverbial cane over the previous decade. What recommendation would you give them?
Instantly after the disaster, I sympathized and subscribed to Ben Bernanke's place on market insurance policies, as a result of in any other case, the 2008-09 disaster might have advanced into the Nice Melancholy 2.zero. Don’t forget that within the absence of financial or fiscal stimulus, the inventory market crash of 1929 led to the Nice Melancholy, which left hundreds of banks bankrupt. Bernanke and his fellow central bankers realized this lesson and I feel their actions, together with the massive unconventional financial stimulus, when key charges went to zero, had been wanted. A fiscal stimulus was wanted, as was the coverage of supporting illiquid however solvent monetary establishments.
Nevertheless, we at the moment are coping with the legacy of those actions, resembling the buildup of personal and public money owed we mentioned earlier. Though low inflation charges might permit for a really gradual regularization of the coverage charge normalization course of, the mere quantity of debt makes the worldwide financial system susceptible to a extreme disaster.
Briefly, central banks haven’t used restoration years too effectively. Because the saying goes, "the very best time to restore the roof of the home is when the solar is shining", in order that it’s protected when the subsequent storm will happen. Vulnerabilities within the system are presently hidden and can seem if and on the time of the subsequent financial downturn.
Bitcoins and crypto-currencies are born of mistrust of central bankers. You’ve just lately expressed sturdy opinions on this matter.
Properly, I’m an professional on asset bubbles and the monetary disaster. I’ve studied so many historic bubbles. I've written an entire guide, Disaster Economics, about bubbles and their busts. I do know one after I see one. And naturally, whether or not there’s a actual bubble – it's a protracted and sophisticated story. However for me, all cryptographic area is an asset that isn’t actually cash. It's probably not a foreign money. It’s not an evolutionary technique of cost. They aren’t so secure when it comes to retailer of worth.
And what occurred, particularly in 2017, when the bitcoin value went from $ 2,000 to $ 20,000 by the tip of the 12 months, I had all of the traits of a bubble. All of the extra revealing, as of the second half of 2017, hundreds of thousands of individuals had been not conscious of the funds and portfolio investments pushed by FOMO or the worry of lacking the acquisition, bitcoin and all these others. currencies.
For me, it regarded like an exponential parabolic bubble. That's why I turned very vocal in the direction of the tip of 2017. And guess what? This bubble began to burst as a result of there was no actual basic worth on these belongings. Then even bitcoin, from the highest, has misplaced about 85% of its worth. And it's your best option as a result of hundreds of those cash have been created as scams and have misplaced virtually all their worth. The highest 10 crypto-currencies, excluding Bitcoin, present a mean loss in worth because the peak of 92% to 93%.
That was for me the mom and father of all of the bubbles. And like each bubble, it went uncontrolled and went bankrupt. I had sufficient self-confidence to say that it was a bubble. I submitted financial institution testimony to the US Senate with a 40-page newspaper calling cryptocurrency, and I used to be very noisy on Twitter towards this military of people that had been completely delusional. Glad to say that I understood this bubble effectively.
I've reviewed the three hottest tweets of your Twitter feed, hoping that they might focus in your work on financial crises. However your hottest messages are crypto-currencies. There may be quite a lot of ardour on this area. Does this offer you a break?
Properly, I'm hiring on Twitter and I've additionally attended quite a lot of these crypto or blockchain conferences. I’ve met a few of these folks and I need to say that I’ve by no means seen in my life folks on one aspect as smug, fanatical and fanatical about this new class of belongings, whereas being fully and concurrently completely unaware of the fundamental financial system, finance, foreign money, financial institution, central financial institution, financial coverage.
They need to reinvent every little thing about cash, however most of them are completely naive. The connection between smug and ignorant is staggering – I've by no means seen such a niche in my life. They’re fanatics. A few of them, resembling criminals, fanatics, crooks, carnival barkers, insiders who’re simply speaking about their guide 24 hours a day, 7 days every week.
There is a component of extra in each bubble, however the typical bubble is the results of a technological evolution that might be able to change the world for the higher. Web was in a bubble on the finish of the 90s, but it surely was a actuality, however the valuations of many Web-related titles had been exorbitant. Costs have collapsed and Web firms have gone bankrupt, however the web has steadily grown. Billions of individuals have used it and this has modified the world. Cryptocurrency as a expertise has completely no foundation for fulfillment, and the mom of all of the bubbles is now bankrupt.
The interactions on Twitter and in individual with cryptocurrency followers have made me stronger and safer in my perception.
Has there been a selected episode of cryptocurrency mania that stands out?
Within the fall of 2017, when the bubble was in full swing, just about everybody I knew, even random folks on the road, would stop me and the very first thing they might say can be: " Will you be a part of the cryptographic motion? Do I’ve to purchase bitcoin? It was a typical end-of-bubble habits when unsuspecting and fully fanatical traders hear concerning the bubble, they don’t even know what it’s. It's regular. Afraid to overlook. They usually received on the bandwagon with none concept, and the insiders took full benefit of those suckers at $ 20,000 per bitcoin and comparable waste. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have misplaced their t-shirts shopping for on the forefront, however have misplaced between 80% and 90% of their investments over the subsequent 12 months.
Once you see these cupping traders – on this case I name them retail cupping – get into this FOMO frenzy, then you recognize this bubble is about to burst. So I noticed it coming, even when it comes to timing.
The benefit of crypto-currencies is that, not like different bubbles that exploded and that resulted in a sort of systemic disaster, this asset class was comparatively small. Sadly, many suckers have misplaced their shirts, however this has no systemic affect.
What are some bubble detection instruments? What does your disaster evaluation framework contain?
It’s a mixture of a scientific strategy and an artwork. I research bubbles and asset and credit score bubbles, in addition to their crises and their monetary disaster for 30 years now.
For instance, you must separate a scholar debt downside from a enterprise downside, a family debt downside from a banking downside, issues with non-bank monetary establishments or international locations. This offers you a foundation for assessing vulnerability to a foreign money disaster, a banking disaster, a funds disaster, a scholar debt disaster, enterprise or family points. Every of them is totally different relying on the nation, the state of affairs. Excesses could be one space or the opposite with a number of suggestions loops.
There may be, in fact, an enormous educational literature, to which I’ve contributed, like many others, on how one can mannequin the buildup of those monetary vulnerabilities. In the course of the course of historical past, we’ve got had hundreds of empirical case research of crises of all kinds.
All I’ve realized for 30 years, I put it in Disaster Economics, the place I begin by saying that seizures should not black swans. I fairly name the white swans of seizures.
What did I imply by that? My good buddy and an excellent thinker, Nassim Taleb, wrote to Black Swan concerning the occasion that happens from the intense tail of the forged and that may not be predicted upfront, however that everybody thinks they’ll clarify after the actual fact.
However for me, monetary crises should not tornadoes or earthquakes that escape the prediction. Monetary crises fairly resemble hurricanes that end result from an accumulation of financial and monetary vulnerabilities and political errors that finally attain a important level, a Minsky second, when an accumulation of surplus debt and credit score results in extreme risk-taking. The habits of many contributors within the system results in an accumulation of asset costs and a credit score bubble that turns into uncontrolled. In some unspecified time in the future, shocks happen, and it is extremely tough to foretell what shock would be the shock, however finally, one thing will finish the growth and the bubble will burst.
Now it isn’t straightforward to make the correct selections concerning the actual timing of the recession, however this accumulation of economic vulnerabilities and political errors doesn’t occur in six months. This often occurs over a number of years. So, if you happen to look ahead to these excesses, you’ll be able to see the place there’s a buildup of housing debt and mortgage credit score, a bubble that isn’t sustainable. So you need to use a mixture of theoretical fashions and empirical research, after which examine the structure steps to different monetary or credit score bubbles. It’s right here that artwork comes, along with science, to moderately assess whether or not we’re within the fifth, sixth or seventh spherical of this accumulation.
Let's say traders are seeing bubbles on the horizon. They need to park their belongings someplace with out being correlated. The place ought to they search to diversify?
The actual fact is that traders need to keep away from monetary vulnerabilities. On one aspect, they need to keep invested, however however, they search to protect their capital within the occasion of great downturn. Not only a 10% correction. Not even a bear market of 20%, however one thing worse.
Savvy traders might be able to discover methods to purchase safety towards excessive losses within the markets. It may be refined dangerous hedge funds which might be actually attempting to supply insurance coverage towards one other international monetary disaster. However you pay a premium within the type of insurance-like funds for a very long time to guard your self towards one thing that may occur solely each 10, 12 or 15 years.
Your buddy Nassim Taleb requested if the protected haven standing of the American treasures was justified. What’s your catch? Do traders have viable options?
In response to the investor, equities are uncovered to market danger, whereas bonds are thought of protected. Financial historical past suggests, and the monetary dangers of latest a long time verify it, that even sovereigns might default. We’ve seen it in rising markets. I've written an entire guide about it and now even some developed economies can, beneath sure situations, be uncovered to a debt disaster. Which means that in international locations with unsustainable debt ranges, authorities bonds should not essentially a protected different to equities.
In the US particularly, our fiscal trajectory doesn’t appear wholesome in any respect. The funds deficit this 12 months is anticipated to achieve $ 1 trillion and improve. Over the subsequent decade, as child boomers retire, this hole might worsen. Consequently, our already excessive debt will improve an increasing number of.
In relative phrases, the US continues to be in higher form than, for instance, Europe and Japan. Public debt as a share of the financial system in most international locations of Europe and Japan is larger than in the US. Potential progress is decrease and in the US, as in Japan, you’ll be able to monetize your debt whereas particular person members of the euro space, like Italy, do not need their very own foreign money. Europeans can monetize the money owed of all EU members on the similar time, however not individually.
That's why I don’t worry concerning the US fiscal local weather within the quick time period, and even throughout the international monetary disaster, US Treasuries and greenback belongings have change into the protected haven. Don’t forget that, whereas the zero level of the worldwide monetary disaster was there, the US authorities's debt obligations had been, in relative phrases, perceived to be safer than the others.
Nevertheless, the fiscal trajectory of the US, if you happen to take a horizon of 10 to 10 years within the medium and long run, will not be sustainable. So, even when they’re protected now, it’s unlikely that tax coverage will resolve the issue, given the absence of bipartisanship. I worry that the US will resolve this downside solely when the disaster hits in a number of years. And it could take that sort of critical disaster to pressure politicians to sort out the issues. I don’t see that occuring in any other case.
We’ve seen what market self-discipline can do in Eire, Spain, Portugal and Greece to impose changes. There may be nonetheless no market self-discipline in the US. As well as, the US greenback enjoys the standing of a most well-liked reserve foreign money. What this implies is that this risk could be referred far-off within the sequel. Mais le calcul finira par se produire. Je ne pense pas que ce calcul aura lieu dans les cinq prochaines années, mais étant donné les tendances actuelles, dans 10 ans, même les views budgétaires des États-Unis deviendront insoutenables.
Ainsi, malgré des préoccupations très réelles à lengthy terme, la dette américaine continuera à offrir une certaine stabilité à courtroom et à moyen terme. Avez-vous d'autres bonnes nouvelles? Quels sont les développements sur les marchés financiers qui vous intéressent le plus?
Je pense que l’un des elements les plus positifs est qu’il existe une révolution technologique qui changera probablement le monde. C’est une combinaison d’intelligence artificielle, d’apprentissage automatique, de données volumineuses et d’Web des objets qui conduit à une révolution de la fabrication, une révolution de la technologie financière, une révolution de la biotechnologie et potentiellement une révolution énergétique.
De nombreuses perturbations majeures vont éventuellement augmenter la productivité et créer plus de biens et de providers. Dans ce contexte, je dirais que l'avenir des providers financiers n'a rien à voir avec les crypto-monnaies ou la technologie dite de la blockchain.
La fintech est la vraie révolution dans les providers financiers, mais la fintech n’a rien à voir avec la crypto. Fintech va être une combinaison d'intelligence artificielle et de données volumineuses et de l'web omniprésent. Il révolutionnera les systèmes de paiement, l’allocation du crédit, les fonctions du marché des capitaux, les assurances, la gestion des investissements, les conseils financiers, and so on.
C'est donc la bonne nouvelle. La mauvaise nouvelle est que ces improvements technologiques sont à forte intensité de capital. Cela signifie que si vous êtes un capital-risqueur, vous ferez très bien. Si vous faites partie des 20% de la distribution la plus importante en termes de capital humain, de personnes qualifiées et éduquées, AI vous rendra plus clever. Vous pourrez utiliser ces improvements pour devenir plus productif et gagner plus d'argent. Mais si vous êtes un travailleur moyennement qualifié, voire moyennement qualifié, ou que votre emploi est col bleu, alors de plus en plus cette révolution technologique menacera votre prospérité. Je crains donc que l'inégalité des revenus et de la richesse ne s'aggrave.
Nous pouvons déjà le constater dans les réactions hostiles au commerce, aux migrations, à la mondialisation. Les grandes perturbations des 10 à 20 prochaines années ne seront pas nécessairement liées au commerce et à la mondialisation, mais à ces perturbations technologiques, à moins que nous ne trouvions le moyen d'élargir le capital humain grâce à l'éducation. Nous devons veiller à ce que la plupart des gens prospèrent dans l'économie numérique et l'IA. Ou faire face à une forte réaction populiste dans certains secteurs ou régions du monde.
Je suis donc un optimiste technologique. Ces nouveaux outils vont révolutionner de nombreux elements de nos vies. En tant que consommateurs, nous allons tous en bénéficier. Je crains qu'en tant que producteurs, certaines personnes ne disposent pas de revenus et d'emplois pour tirer parti des biens et des providers meilleur marché, ce qui provoquera de nombreux troubles sociaux.
Pour conclure, Dr Roubini, sachant ce que vous savez maintenant, quels conseils donneriez-vous à votre jeune enfant?
Une selected que je constate partout est un très faible niveau de littératie financière. La plupart des gens ne connaissent pas l’économie de base et manquent de compétences de base en finance. La plupart de ceux qui me demandaient «Devrais-je acheter du bitcoin?» N’appréciaient même pas la différence entre les actions et les obligations ou les sorts de marchés, ni les bases du crédit et des taux d’intérêt.
Cela a deux conséquences fâcheuses. Premièrement, les gens n’épargnent pas assez. Si vous ne commencez pas à économiser quand vous êtes jeune, vous n’allez pas assez d’argent de retraite pour vivre confortablement dans un monde où l’espérance de vie est de plus en plus longue. Vous devez commencer à épargner, automobile la sécurité sociale ne suffira pas.
Deuxièmement, quand ils épargnent, les gens épargnent parfois de manière imprudente. Ils achètent des choses risquées, ils jouent, ils échangent trop, ils se retrouvent dans des bulles stupides comme le bitcoin ou les autres modes du jour. Un investisseur de détail non averti devrait économiser autant qu'il le peut. Investissez dans un portefeuille diversifié composé principalement de fonds indiciels et laissez-le tranquille. Il n'y a aucune raison de payer d'énormes frais aux gestionnaires de fonds de couverture. Achetez et détenez des actions avec une certaine allocation en liquidités et investissez jusqu'à la retraite dans un fonds indiciel passif à faible coût.
Cela ne prend pas beaucoup de sophistication, mais la plupart des gens ne le font pas. Je souhaiterais donc qu’il y ait un cours de base obligatoire au collège, sinon plus tôt, au lycée, sur la littératie financière, afin que tout jeune homme sache qu’il est necessary d’épargner et d’investir de manière intelligente. Les enjeux sont élevés et si vous faites des erreurs élémentaires, elles coûteront cher par la suite. C’est ce que je conseillerais à tout le monde.
