Jim Paulson will comment on the unique response from the stock market, investors, and policy officials to the virus crisis where he will illustrate that this is because it is the only "Recession by Proclamation" in U.S. history. Now, the US is beginning its first ever Recovery by Proclamation. Dr. Paulsen will also focus on why the combination of widespread fear and under-ownership of risk assets and massive policy stimulus is a powerful force for a continuation of this new bull market. Finally, he will discuss what specific asset classes, investment factors, and sectors probably make the most sense right now for inclusion in investor portfolios.
