I joined The Investor’s Podcast once more this week to debate a variety of matters. The YouTube chapters within the interview are linked beneath and you may hearken to the total audio right here.
I caught some flak for my feedback on ESG investing and whether or not Central Banks ought to have a local weather change mandate. I didn’t reply this as clearly as I’d wished, however my basic feedback had been correct for my part. Briefly, the Fed (and different Central Banks) function with very blunt devices. Combating local weather change requires a extra focused and exact coverage strategy. That is higher suited, in my view, with laws and monetary coverage. The Fed may nudge companies in the correct route there, however I believe it could be a mistake for the Fed to begin utilizing conventional financial coverage instruments with a purpose on concentrating on ESG and local weather change. These instruments are too blunt and Financial Coverage is just not the correct lever to drag there. I hope that clarifies some.
