"Lift-Off" - How will it affect us?



After years of zero interest rates, the Federal Reserve is preparing to raise short-term interest rates, an event commonly known as "lift-off".  Join us for this BrainBite Evening Lecture to hear expert Andrew Rose discuss the implications of lift-off for asset markets around the world; what will higher American interest rates mean for global exchange rates, stock markets, and bond prices.


Andrew Rose

"Lift-Off" - How will it affect us? will be led by Andrew K. Rose, the B.T. Rocca Jr Professor of International Business in the Economic Analysis and Policy Group, Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.

Andrew is interested in the theory and practice of economic policy, and most of his work is applied and driven by "real world" international phenomena.  He has published over one hundred and sixty papers, including eighty articles in refereed economics journals, and was the managing editor of The Journal of International Economics from 1995 through 2001.  His research addresses issues in international trade, finance, and macroeconomics, and has received more than 30,000 citations. His teaching, for which he has won two awards, is in the area of international macroeconomics.

He has worked on five continents and at a number of international economic agencies, including: the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank. He has also worked at a number of national agencies, including: the US Department of Treasury, HM Treasury (UK), the Canadian Department of Finance; and the central banks of: Australia, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, and the United States.
