The recent banking turmoil in the U.S. and Europe triggered by the failure of Silicon Valley Bank — the largest bank failure since the 2008 financial crisis — seems to have abated, but questions remain about whether banking stress could resurge and what policymakers can do to prevent that.

How to Protect a Stock Portfolio During a Bear Market
At a time when stocks are sliding deeper into a bear market, it can be hard (and painful) to remember that equities have the best chance of getting investors an attractive return over the longer term.

But there are ways investors can insulate portfolios until the turbulence subsides, according to Goldman Sachs Research.

This episode is based off of Goldman Sachs’ latest Top of Mind report.
Is the US Dollar Too Strong?
The U.S. dollar is on a roll. Even as the American economy shows signs of cooling, the greenback has soared against major currencies from Europe’s 19-member euro to the Chinese renminbi. An index of the dollar versus other major currencies is trading around a two-decade high.
Will Slaying Inflation Require Recession?
In the fight to combat high inflation, US and European central banks have embarked on aggressive tightening paths that seem all but guaranteed to continue in the near term. But how much damage to economic growth will they ultimately have to inflict to win this fight? In the US, a heated debate has emerged about whether the Fed can rebalance an overheated labor market—a key requirement to tame inflation—without a sharp rise in unemployment. And in the Euro area, the ECB is stuck between a rock and a hard place as the region remains in the throes of an energy crisis that is both weighing on growth and contributing to high inflation.

The US economy has about a one in three chance of slipping into recession by the middle of 2023, according to Goldman Sachs Research economists.

Rising Stagflation Risks Are Changing the Investment Playbook
For decades, investors have relied on a 60/40 portfolio — a mix of 60% stocks and 40% bonds — for steady growth and income.

Are U.S. Companies Actually Reshoring Their Supply Chains?
Why hasn’t reshoring taken off in the U.S.? It may be that the things that made offshoring popular—like lower labor costs—are still relevant, according to economists at Goldman Sachs.
