On September 13, 2012, Bloomberg Markets magazine hosted the “Bloomberg Markets 50 Summit” at which three dozen global financial leaders gathered to discuss and share their ideas and views on the state of the US economy, steps to saving the euro, new opportunities in Latin America, and how China will address its political and economic challenges. Speakers also addressed tax reform proposals, the effect of central bank policies, alternative investing, and the opportunities for global financial institutions.
Key speakers included Hoover fellows John Taylor, Allan Meltzer, and Kevin Warsh, all of whom participated on the panel discussing central bank policy and the Federal Reserve. John Taylor is the George P. Shultz Senior Fellow in Economics at the Hoover Institution and the Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics at Stanford University. Allan Meltzer is a distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and the Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. Kevin Warsh is a distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and a lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
“The Summit coincides with Bloomberg Market’s magazine’s annual list of the Most Influential 50–the cover story of the October 2012 issue–and features speakers from the ranking. These are the people with the power in global finance–the money managers who move markets, the bankers who affect the price of a security or structure of a deal, and the policy makers who face down economic crises.” The list is created by a group of Bloomberg News journalists in 150 bureaus around the globe. “The magazine emphasizes people who rise to the top in the rankings of hedge funds, economists, and investment bankers who are featured in Bloomberg Markets throughout the year.” (Business Wire)
The daylong summit was held at the Gotham Hall in New York City.
