The Future of Globalization

We believe that crosscurrents in technological, economic, and political forces likely will change the contours of globalization but not end it. However, the familiar pattern of extended supply chains fragmented across multiple low-wage production centers appears to be evolving towards more concentrated, high-tech, and regional trade. We believe that globalization is evolving toward much broader and persistent opportunities in traded services and cutting edge technologies in the U.S. and parts of developing Asia.

Evergrande 101: Take a breath

What can we overreact to today? Guess we know the answer to that one. We entered the weekend with investors looking ahead to this week's Fed meeting and policy decision on Wednesday, plus a full slate of other central bank meetings. On Monday, markets called an audible and all we're talking about now is Evergrande. A lot of that talk has led to 2008 comparisons attempting to decipher whether we are on the verge of a Lehman event and global macro contagion. That got out of hand quickly, so let's take a moment to take a breath and give this a hard look.

Risks to fade, follow, or fear

Over the past few weeks, numerous investors have asked us about various market risks and the possibility of a near-term correction — a fair question given that the S&P 500 Index bottomed on March 23, 2020, at a closing price of 2,237 and has essentially doubled since. In fact, based upon index closing levels, we have to go back to last October to find the most recent 5% correction. This is statistically unusual — going back to 1928, each calendar year has generated three to four such corrections.
