Dry Powder: The Private Equity Podcast

Macro Update: A Strange Brew

Karen Harris, managing director of Bain’s Macro Trends Group, returns to the show for a conversation on interest rates, inflation, bank runs, and a “weird” mix of economic indicators.


Macro Update: A Strange Brew

The last time Karen Harris was on Dry Powder, we mapped out a wide range of scenarios for the global economy, from a severe recession to a “soft landing.” But over the past three months, the range of outcomes has narrowed. No one is talking about a soft landing these days. Today, most investors and policymakers are bracing for a recession.

“It’s not good news,” Karen says. “It’s steadier news.”

  Today on Dry Powder, Karen and I discuss the implications of a global recession and whether the emerging consensus will bring some clarity to central bank policies and deal markets.
