Rhodes Meets “The Street”

Video featuring William R. Rhodes, author of Banker to the World.

Former Senior Vice Chairman at Citigroup and current head of Rhodes Global Advisors (and , therefore, arguably one of the most influential men in global finance of the past 35 years), William R. Rhodes sits down for a one-on-one chat with the Wall Street Journal‘s Javier David to discuss Europe’s debt crisis and the potential ramifications of economic instability in the EU and beyond.

Rhodes, who has to his credit more than a half century of high-level economic diplomacy and crisis management (a time during which he faced off with the likes of Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe and Nicaragua’s Sandanista government, and won a box of cigars in a bet with Fidel Castr0), gives his well-honed views on a wide range of topics, including:

  • Ongoing economic turmoil in Spain, Ireland, and Greece–and whether this instablity can be “contained”
  • The prospects for success of austerity measures currently being implemented in several EU countries
  • The need for strong, decisive leadership in times of economic crisis
  • And why there are no one-size-fits-all solutions for dealing with unstable economies
