Example text

Turn to the newspapers, for example, in the weeks before any major currency ‘event’ – whether the dollar coming off gold in 1971, the floating of the mark-dollar rate in March 1973, the announcement of monetary union between East and West Germany in February 1990, the shake-ups of the ERM in autumn 1992 and summer 1993 – and you will find no speculative articles on how the currency map might change and what the medium-term economic implications would be. Ahead of great political events there is the same lack of speculation about possible scenarios stretching into the medium term.

That is not to belittle the importance of the information. The economist who is able to scan the main stories each morning in the German, US, French, Swiss, and Japanese financial press, and to speed through the screen-based reports for each of the major markets, is off to a good start. But information must also be drawn from other sources – in particular the vast array of financial and economic data released by national and supranational official statistics offices. Beyond information gathering, the market economist must function as a scenario builder.

Reuters or Telerate for example can carry much fuller stories on many events of key market interest than can even a financial newspaper. Futuristic comment, however, is in even shorter and poorer supply on the screen than off. Screen service editors do not have budgets for commissioning wide-ranging well-researched pieces speculating on possible long-term futures. The ideal medium for such a piece, anyhow, is not a screen-service whose audience is mainly market traders and whose output is obliterated (wiped off the screen) after at most 24 hours.
