The United States has selected its leader for the next four years. In addition to affecting America’s relations with foreign countries and altering the course for myriad domestic issues, the choice of a new president will have a profound influence on Asia’s financial markets. Our panel of experts will examine how stock markets across the region have reacted to the selection of President Barack Obama and how Asian firms have adjusted their investments in the United States. In addition, our panelists explore the possibility for broader cooperation among U.S. and Asian policy-makers as they seek to address global economic challenges. Finally, as the direction of U.S. financial policy changes to reflect the priorities of the new administration, the group discusses the relative likelihood of certain global market changes over the next four years.
