Macroeconomic uncertainty makes firms more profitable in the short-term, but the bill comes due later.
Oliver Binz is an INSEAD Assistant Professor of Accounting and Control. He received his PhD in Business Administration from Duke University. Prior to academia, he worked for Deutsche Bank’s Asset and Wealth Management division.
Oliver’s research interests lie at the intersection of equity valuation and macroeconomics. Some of his recent projects explore how macroeconomic developments affect managers’ and consumers’ decision making, and the resulting consequences for firms’ profits.
Oliver teaches Financial Accounting in the MBA programme.
