13 April, 2017 10:00 AM ET [10:00] (New York), 02:00 PM UTC [14:00] | (1 hr) | Time Zone Converter
With the US Federal Reserve Bank expected to raise interest rate in 2017, how will the emerging world respond to that in their monetary policymaking? What impact would a higher cost of capital have on business investment decisions? And what impact does the strong dollar have on the trajectory of either fiscal or monetary policy in emerging economies, especially given the increasing uncertainties surrounded by the US trade policy?
In April's Economics Watch Emerging Market View, we will focus on the key developments in monetary policies across the major emerging economies, and the potential impacts on businesses in those countries.
