Emission Control: The Expanding Low Carbon Economy

Until recently, low carbon technologies like wind and solar were a niche part of the global energy landscape.

According to GS SUSTAIN's Jaakko Kooroshy, these four technologies not only could help global carbon emissions peak as early as 2020, versus mainstream expectations of a peak closer to 2030-they're also poised to reshape competitive dynamics across the global economy.

Artificial Intelligence: The Apex Technology of the Information Age
19:24
Artificial intelligence - the science of teaching computers to think like humans - could reshape the global economy by making both capital investments and labor costs more efficient. That would provide a meaningful boost to productivity growth, which has stagnated since the internet boom of the 1990s. Heath Terry of Goldman Sachs Research discusses the technology's most promising uses, the industries set to take advantage and how widespread adoption might impact the labor market.

Half Full: The Case for Remaining Invested in US Equities
29:03
US equities have returned nearly 300% since the trough of the global financial crisis, and now sit at historically high valuations. Sharmin Mossavar-Rahmani, chief investment officer of Private Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs, says that high valuations alone are not enough to warrant underweighting equities. What's important is context: she explains her optimism towards the US economy, as well as the potential risks to her views.

Tim Moe, chief Asia Pacific equity strategist for Goldman Sachs Research, says recent economic data indicate global growth has perhaps reached "peak momentum."

The Metrics that Matter: A 'Mainstream' Approach to ESG
26:09
Environmental, social and governance metrics have matured to the point where they can help mainstream investors beat their benchmarks, says Goldman Sachs Research's Derek Bingham. As a member of the GS SUSTAIN team, which seeks to identify companies with long-term growth potential, Bingham and his colleagues study which sustainability measures most closely align with returns over time. He shares the team's findings and explains why he sees ESG research as integral to a "holistic" take on stock selection.

Retail: Online, Offline, All the Time
28:08
The retail sector is at the epicenter of technological disruption and changing consumer behavior. But according to Goldman Sachs' Kathy Elsesser, global chair of the Healthcare Group and the Consumer and Retail Group in Investment Banking, and Kim Posnett, global head of Internet Investment Banking, these shifts are more evolution than revolution. An omnichannel approach, combining traditional brick-and-mortar and ecommerce offerings, is emerging as the primary way forward for companies at both ends of the spectrum.

Music: Back in Black
29:46
Digitization ravaged the music business, but nearly 20 years after the launch of Napster, the industry has returned to growth on the back of a "second digital revolution," according to Lisa Yang of Goldman Sachs Research. Streaming services are leading the way, growing the revenue pie for artists and labels both and creating new opportunities for companies across the music ecosystem. Yang is joined by Marc Geiger, worldwide head of music for William Morris Endeavor; and Patrick Spence, CEO of Sonos, to talk about where music was and where it could be headed.

With energy demand expected to double in Asia by 2030, and with a billion people currently without electricity, Ankur Sahu, co-head of Goldman Sachs' Merchant Bank in Asia-Pacific, says that renewables fill a crucial gap in the marketplace. Investors have been faced with ample opportunity, he says, so much so that an industry previously thought as niche has rapidly broadened to include large institutional investors -- even in emerging markets.

The Store of the Future

For all the pain that e-commerce has inflicted on retailers, the brick-and-mortar store is far from dead, according to Goldman Sachs Research's lead retail analyst Matt Fassler. Instead, he says, survivors of the latest round of retail disruption will succeed in part by narrowing their sights, focusing either on efficiently distributing goods or improving the in-store experience for customers.

He shares how his path has evolved over the course of his career and his thoughts on today's market environment.

They discuss building Method, the innovative homecare company, out of the dirtiest bachelor pad in San Francisco, and why both got the itch to start-up a second time, Eric with Olly Nutrition, and Adam with Ripple Foods.

Tax Reform, Bitcoin and the Year Ahead for Financials
28:36
Banks in the United States are well-positioned to benefit from corporate tax reform, says Goldman Sachs Research's Richard Ramsden. What's less clear is how they'll continue to fend off challenges from technology companies, which have already made inroads in certain businesses, like payments. Richard shares his outlook for the sector heading into 2018, talking through the regulatory and technological changes that are on everyone's minds - including what bitcoin means for banks.

President Trump, Year Two: What's Next on the Agenda?
30:27
Now over the hurdle of tax reform, the question becomes which political priorities the Trump Administration will tackle next. Alec Phillips, chief US political economist for Goldman Sachs Research, says the potential for a mid-term election shakeup is likely to delay legislative progress on infrastructure and compromise on immigration, but he does expect movement on financial deregulation this year. Trade tensions with China could also re-heat as the Administration responds to the results of several key international trade investigations.

The Rate Stuff: What Markets Are Saying About the Macro Outlook
25:48
What are the markets telling us about expectations for the economy and monetary policy? We sat down with Francesco Garzarelli, co-chief markets economist of the Global Macro Research team, who says recent upticks in volatility reflect a stronger US growth outlook and uncertainty about how the Federal Reserve will respond to it. He discusses why investors should pay attention to the "term premium" reflected in bond prices to assess whether investors are too complacent about inflation, and the implications of divergence in monetary policy between the US, Europe and Japan.

From Mobile Wallets to Blockchain: How Fintech is Growing Up
23:04
The fintech sector has been evolving rapidly as new startups emerge and large financial institutions figure out how to adapt...or else get left behind. To understand where we are in the "three waves of fintech," we spoke with Jeff Gido, global head of the financial technology sector in Goldman Sachs' Investment Banking Division. "We're seeing much more two-way dialogue [between financial services incumbents and startups]. We're seeing much more cooperation, much more partnerships. And we're actually seeing a lot of investment by traditional financial services into these fintech startups."

Is Bitcoin a (Bursting) Bubble?
26:16
As cryptocurrency volatility continues, Steve Strongin, Charlie Himmelberg and Jeff Currie of Goldman Sachs Research reaffirm their cautious stance on the long-term viability of bitcoin and other first-generation cryptocurrencies. "This should be a battle of the best technology, and instead it seems to be a common wave of enthusiasm," says Strongin, head of GS Research, of the buzz surrounding the first generation. "Certainly these technologies offer some promise, but on the other hand, when you think about how much they will need to change to meet that need, you realize…how different those future generations are going to be."

Oil Investing Enters "The Age of Restraint"
22:00
The oil and natural gas investment cycle is entering an "age of restraint," according to a newly-published report from Goldman Sachs Research. In this episode, we sit down with Michele Della Vigna, Commodity Equity business unit leader in EMEA, to understand what this means for the sector. "The period of restraint is a period where fear around long-term demand distraction from decarbonization and electric vehicles is forcing the industry to really rationalize its capital investment," Della Vigna says.

In this episode, Ryan Nolan, global head of digital gaming in Goldman Sachs' Investment Banking Division, and his colleague Moritz Baier, a former eSports world champion, discuss how eSports is going mainstream after facing early skepticism.

Beyond VR and AR: Extended Reality to Transform Our Lives as Consumers
23:10
It's not a matter of if Extended Reality (XR) will touch all aspects of our lives-it's a matter of when, says Heather Bellini of Goldman Sachs Research. By 2025, XR is projected to generate over $100 billion in sales, with the consumer and e-commerce sectors being its biggest beneficiaries. The technology carries broad implications for healthcare, education and real estate as well. "Ultimately, this AR/VR/mixed reality movement will change the way we interact with technology forever," Bellini says.

At the Movies: Battling Box-Office Blues in an Age of Streaming
32:49
From subscription services with generous discounts on concessions to comfier theaters, the film industry is moving aggressively to get more people off their sofas and to the box office, says Drew Borst of Goldman Sachs Research, so far with mixed results. Some efforts (think: reclining seats) are likely to prove more successful than others (think: forays into alternative content like eSports), he says. But one constant is likely to be a heavier reliance on big-budget blockbusters to draw audiences even as TV ups its game. "In television, the hits keep getting smaller and smaller and smaller as the supply has ballooned. It's become a crowded marketplace, and it's difficult for even a very well-produced, high-quality series to stand out," Borst says. "In movies, it's just the opposite. The hits are getting bigger and bigger...in the United States, but also globally."

What Happened to the American Pension?
25:35
Fifty years ago, if you asked Americans how they mainly saved for retirement, chances are they'd answer: "my pension." That's no longer the case. After surging in the post-World War II years, corporate pensions have been on the decline in the US over the past couple decades, largely driven by a stricter regulatory environment and long period of low interest rates, says Goldman Sachs' Michael Moran. With fewer corporations offering comprehensive pension plans, Moran says it will be up to individuals to carry the burden of retirement savings. "It's going to be falling on a lot of individuals in terms of saving for retirement, investing money themselves and then realizing how long they're going to have to use that money in retirement."
