I joined The Investor’s Podcast once more this week to debate a variety of subjects. The YouTube chapters within the interview are linked beneath and you’ll hearken to the complete 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 normal feedback had been correct for my part. Briefly, the Fed (and different Central Banks) function with very blunt devices. Preventing local weather change requires a extra focused and exact coverage strategy. That is higher suited, for my part, with laws and financial coverage. The Fed might nudge companies in the appropriate course there, however I feel it might be a mistake for the Fed to start out utilizing conventional financial coverage instruments with a aim on concentrating on ESG and local weather change. These instruments are too blunt and Financial Coverage will not be the appropriate lever to drag there. I hope that clarifies some.
