"Shifting US-Japan Politics, Banking Landscape and Financial Regulations in the Trump Era"

Language: The speech and Q&A will be in English

With the Donald Trump administration in its sixth month, much remains in flux in Washington DC, which has implications for the rest of the world from the viewpoints of defence, politics, trade, business, economic policy, and finance.  These are topics author and political consultant Nomi Prins will speak about in this press conference at the FCCJ.

As a former investment banker at Goldman Sachs and member of Presidential contender Bernie Sanders' Federal Reserve Advisory Committee, Prins is flying into Tokyo after time in Washington working with Republicans and Democrats on the restoration of the Glass-Steagall Act that separated commercial from investment banking, and which, for the first time since its repeal in 1999 is on the platform of both major US political parties.

How this issue evolves has major implications for the relationship between US and Japanese banks, as well as central banks with respect to monetary policy and subsidies. She will speak on the prospects for growth when debt and central bank assets make up so much of GDP.

Her talk and Q&A will include US policy on defence spending, financial regulations, and trade agreements. She will elaborate on the impact that ongoing central bank support has on international markets and economies, as the Fed stands poised for its fourth rate hike since the financial crisis, while the Bank of Japan and ECB take different tacks. She will discuss the latest thinking in Washington regarding trade agreements as other nations, including Japan, solidify trading, currency and financial alliances outside of those with the US, a shift with major implications.

Nomi Prins has addressed the Federal Reserve/IMF/World Bank conference in Washington, DC regarding private banking system supervision. Her advice on banking, finance and trade matters is sought by global governments, university and private industry sectors around the world. She has written six books, the most recent being All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power.  Her new book, coming out next spring is called Collusion; How Central Bankers rigged the World.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear what has been happening in Washington on all these issues.
