ReSolve Riffs with David Cervantes of Pinebrook on the Increasing Importance of Political Economy

Our guest this week was David Cervantes, founder of Pine Brook Capital Management. With a rich and diverse background within the investment industry, in the last few years David has dedicated his time to managing his family office and has been developing a macroeconomic framework that considers the objectives and incentives of policymakers as the primary economic drivers. Our conversation included topics such as:

  • Empirical economic analyses and insights from the ‘school of hard knocks’
  • Fundamentally, a process of elimination – determining first what not to do
  • Less theory, more data
  • Where his approach materially diverges from traditional economics
  • Cognitive Perspective – treating models with respect, but never reverence
  • Macroeconomics is basically ‘political economy in drag’
  • A dynamic process of incentives and decisions made by political actors
  • The role of ‘timing luck’ (or misfortune)
  • A stroll down history lane – from WWII and the Great Society to the present
  • A closer look at the gargantuan US federal budget deficit
  • Current backdrop – an ‘inflationary supernova’ fueled by fiscal impulse
  • The Fed’s current reaction function
  • Home prices, OER and how they affect CPI
  • Why interest rate volatility matters significantly more than absolute levels
  • How interest rate vol spills over into the risk premia continuum
  • And much more

This is “ReSolve’s Riffs” – live on YouTube every Friday afternoon to debate the most relevant investment topics of the day, hosted by Adam Butler, Mike Philbrick and Rodrigo Gordillo of ReSolve Global* and Richard Laterman of ReSolve Asset Management Inc.
