FROM DR BRENDAN BROWN
My aim is to deliver regular and concise insights often starkly different from consensus into global monetary issues, in ways which enhance financial outcomes at the individual and corporate level. The insights will include alerts on perceived changes in market trends across a range of asset classes. The basis for my output is original research, extensive use of the financial history laboratory, a passion for ideas quite different from that of today’s “central bankers’ club”, and long experience as a practising international economist. My published viewpoints can form part of a tailored consultancy service for clients who require economic, monetary and strategy advice specific to their requirements. I welcome any feedback.
TRENDS, CYCLES & OPPORTUNITIES
The Monetary Scenarios approach is to provide a thorough appraisal of the present, economic situation, by applying an appropriate balance of both history and theory. This facilitates a diagnosis of how powerful monetary forces create market dysfunction, and at times, wild swings in speculative temperatures.
Austrian school ideas and original research influence the monetary analysis here, especially regarding inflation in asset markets. There is a continuing critique of consensus views founded on “emperor’s new clothes” fables – especially those narrated by central bankers and amplified by the media. All this helps to sharpen the recommendations for strategy in asset markets, spanning currencies, credit, equities, top quality sovereign bonds and gold.
Research found in Monetary Scenarios extends beyond monetary forces to wider economic trends, as well as political and geopolitical developments.
Sometimes, there are moments when the comprehensive analysis provided here identifies sizeable market opportunities or threats.
