Expert Pitch

Rutgers Scholar Available to Discuss Global Financial Crisis

Steven Adelkoff, a lecturer at Rutgers University’s School of Arts and Sciences, is available to discuss the COVID-19-driven global financial crisis, and lessons learned from past financial crises. Adelkoff teaches Global Governance of Financial Crises in the MA program in Political science - Concentration in United Nations & Global Policy Studies at Rutgers-New Brunswick.

“We can argue what’s happened in the past was a prelude to this global financial crisis,” said Adelkoff. “If it wasn’t the pandemic, it was going to be something else. Growth was slowing, interest rates had been historically low for nearly two decades and asset prices were inflated. There was an asset bubble, in real estate and the stock market. Things were beginning to overheat and slow down at the same time. If you look at the crises of the past, you can see similar signs.”

He also noted, “We’re now in a period of de-globalization, which began in earnest around 2015. People worldwide will be traveling less, and will become more internationally disconnected. We’re going to bring more means of production back to the U.S, most likely at higher cost. There will be lower growth which, combined with the unprecedented recent stimulus, will mean higher sovereign debt. Every government entity - internationally, nationally and locally - will be fighting for tax revenues. There will be limits. You’ll see it reflected in various ways: tariffs among nations; sovereigns failing to cooperate to corner tax evasion; states searching for revenues through increased taxes on our vices.”

Adelkoff is an expert in international business, business ethics and the global flow of money. For over two decades, both as a partner of the global law firm of K&L Gates and as an international entrepreneur, Adelkoff has worked in all aspects of the project finance, structured finance, alternative investment and capital markets industries. He has lead teams negotiating domestic and international transactions involving real estate, commodities, power generation, renewable energy, commodity exploration, investment management platforms, and investment funds representing a range of strategies.
