Mohamed El-Erian on the U.S. economic recovery from coronavirus

The U.S. economic recovery has been held back because Americans lack trust with one another over the coronavirus, Mohamed El-Erian told CNBC on Thursday. 

“It is very difficult for any individual to be certain whether the other person is healthy or not, and that other person is not certain whether you’re healthy or not,” El-Erian said in a “Squawk Box” interview. “So until we have a way of saying, ‘the probability of us getting sick is low,’ then you’re going to have hesitancy.” 

El-Erian, chief economic advisor at Allianz, compared the situation to increased counterparty risk during the financial crisis, when banks lost confidence in other financial institutions being able to meet their obligations in a transaction.

Investor Proposes Technology Application to Stimulate Tourism Industry Rebound

Mexico City, Mexico, Sept. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — JORGE LEAL KIRCHBACH- an expert on economic and tourism issues and a partner at Fibra Kapital, professes that the integration of technology in the tourism industry is the key to its eventual rebound. With 20 years of experience investing in hotels, he already has anticipated in previous months the complications that the current crisis will bring to the tourism industry.
