Webinar: Carry Trades, The Fed's Taper, and Possible Global Contagion

Professor Farrokh Langdana, director of the Rutgers Business School Executive MBA Program, discussed the impact of carry trades, the Federal Reserve's recent slowing down of large-scale asset purchases known as tapering, and what that means for the global economy.

The scheduled 1.5 hour webinar stretched to three hours with over an hour of lively and enlightening Q&A between Professor Langdana and participants. The insights gleaned from the discussion shed important light on understanding the world economy today. Langdana regularly demystifies current economic trends in an accessible and engaging way.
