This was unprecedented. No previous pandemic, including the much more devastating 1918-19 influenza, had elicited comparable responses from finance ministries and central banks.” Niall also recent co-authored a paper studying the evolution of central bank balance sheets over the past 400 years.
Ferguson uses historical perspective to frame current challenges in his insightful articles and presentations.
In his recent Wall Street Journal article, Russian Cash Can Keep Ukraine Alive This Winter, Robert Zoellick writes, “The U.S. needs to reset the strategic chessboard. Washington can change the terms of battle by using its strongest economic weapon. By relying on international law, the U.S. would also reinforce the rules-based order that Russia wants to destroy. That would achieve justice as well as peace.”
Zoellick served as U.S. trade representative (2001-05), deputy U.S. secretary of state (2005-06) and World Bank president (2007-12). He is the author of America in the World and is unrivaled in his depth and breadth of what makes global economies tick and how best to operate in an increasingly global market.
