June 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

GRI Member Only Webinar

Managing Risk Through and After the Pandemic 

The Global Risk Institute is pleased to announce a series of webinars examining the post COVID-19 landscape & the critical role financial services firms will play in creating renewed prosperity. This is the fifth webinar in the series.

In our fifth installment of GRI’s “Managing Risk Through and After the Pandemic” webinar series, we will explain what Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is and the principles behind it. David Bezic will lead the conversation on what the MMT framework would view as the most significant economic and market risks in a post-COVID world.

Key topics include:

  • What does MMT tell us about the effectiveness of recent policy measures to combat COVID-related challenges?
  • How does MMT propose governments deal with mounting government debt?
  • How does this assessment differ from conventional economic analysis?
