Paul Donovan joined UBS in 1992 and is a managing director and global economist. Paul is responsible for formulating and presenting the UBS Investment Research global economic view.
'Paul Donovan clearly demonstrates a critical issue for economic policy makers and investors. Even if inflation remains contained, specific groups in society will have a very different inflation experience from that portrayed by aggregate consumer price data. Understanding why and how inflation experiences differ from group to group will be increasingly important in creating a fairer society.' - Right Honourable Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the United Kingdom Treasury 'Inflation is a topic that can become deeply embedded in a political culture, as Paul Donovan makes clear. Properly understanding the politics as well as the economics of inflation is critical to investment success.' - Gerd W. Hintz, CIO Aequitas - Allianz Equity Advisors (Allianz Global Investors) 'Unveils the ins and outs of inflation - always with the investor & practitioner in mind. The author's sense of humor makes reading the book a real pleasure.' - Bo Bejstrup Christensen, Head of Asset Allocation, Danske Capital
