Given the weak economic data and considerable uncertainty clouding today’s landscape, I must admit to being a bit skeptical about how long the current rally in risk assets1 can last. But in the interest of staying open to alternative views, I recently listened to an economist for a major Japanese financial company deliver a refreshingly optimistic take on the global economy and markets.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
