    Europe's sovereign debt crisis broke in spectacular fashion at the end of 2009 and spread like wild fire to Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy.

    Bringing sovereign debt under control is a global problem, not only in the eurozone but also in the US, UK and Japan. Have policymakers now done enough to contain the crisis? What does it all mean for the eurozone economy and global growth, trade and investment more widely?

    Is the global economy now set for recovery? What is the outlook for the US, European and Dutch economies? What does all this mean for financial markets? What are the implications for US-Dutch economic relations?

    Nick Kounis, Head of Macro Research Group economics at ABN AMRO BANK N.V., will share his expert knowledge with NAF-Biz New York.

    Speaker's Bio:
    Nick is responsible for the bank's analysis of the global economic outlook and the implications for interest rates and exchange rates. The group’s analysis is used by a wide range of clients, including a broad spectrum of investors and corporates, as well as the risk and asset and liability management within the bank.

    Nick has published on a wide range of areas, including the impact of commodity prices on the global economy, the eurozone sovereign debt crisis, global economic and financial imbalances and monetary policy.

    He frequently gives presentations for participants in the financial markets as well as in industry and appears regularly in the financial media, including the Financial Times, Bloomberg and Reuters. Nick was previously Chief European Economist in the Merchant Banking business of Fortis, providing research for institutional investors and large corporates on the European economy and the ECB’s monetary policy.

    Before becoming a bank economist, he worked at HM Treasury in London (the UK ministry of finance), advising ministers on the international economy, including sovereign debt problems and IMF programmes. He also advised on macroeconomic policy and the fiscal framework. Nick holds degrees in economics and finance, most recently from Durham University in the UK.
