Zach Abraham was one of the industry experts quoted in the recent Business Insider story, “The European Union’s $826 billion stimulus plan to battle the coronavirus is ‘too small and too late.’”
Zach Abraham told Business Insider that the EU fund is a mere “stop gap” plan of action.
“While the EU relief package will certainly help things in Europe, it appears to be more of a stop gap measure and pales in comparison to actions taken by the US government,” said Zach Abraham, chief investment officer at Bulwark Capital Management.
In its current structure, Abraham said, the EU cannot survive. What will likely happen is that Germany will back down on European Central Bank guidelines that restrict quantitative easing and other forms of monetary stimulus, and countries such as Italy and Spain will be forced to leave, he said.
