Economist Laurence Boone Addresses the Eurozone Crisis at FIABCI International Business Meeting

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/11/12 -- Internationally recognized economist Laurence Boone addressed the topic of the "Eurozone Crisis" as part of FIABCI, the International Real Estate Federation's Business Meetings which took place in Brussels, Belgium, between 28 November and 2 December 2012. Laurence Boone is Managing Director and Head of Developed Europe Economics at BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research where she is responsible for the developed Europe economics team.

Laurence Boone discussed several aspects related to the EuroZone crisis including how the crisis began, the European response and short- and long-term implications as they pertain to the international real estate market. She outlined several options to both address the crisis and develop a realistic strategy for coming out of the crisis successfully. Laurence Boone sees the euro area crisis as both a financial, sovereign and currency predicament that requires sound policies and practices to reduce public debt and to develop public support for financial institutions. Her presentation included a review of the current data as outlined in descriptive charts tracing the path of the euro crisis and offering key recommendations which need to be considered long range to recover from an economy on the brink of disaster. "We are honored to have Laurence Boone participate in our FIABCI Business Meetings," said Judy Shenefield, FIABCI World President. "Laurence Boone is an effective leader and an authoritative force in the forefront of the European economy. We felt her participation and input would be critical in addressing the greatest challenges and opportunities facing the future of the global markets," she continued.
