The Conference Board Economics Watch®
US/Global Monthly Series II
The Conference Board Economics Watch® is a member service that provides a platform for strategic decision-making by helping senior executives understand changing business and economic conditions worldwide.
In the Economics Watch for November 2011, Bart van Ark will be joined by Vivian Chen in discussing the Global Economic Outlook, Where are we heading?
The state of the global economy has seriously deteriorated in the past six months, which will affect the economic outlook for 2012 and, very possibly, well beyond. Even though downward pressures on the U.S. economy seem to have eased somewhat, the odds of a near-term recession are still at an uncomfortable high level of 50 percent. We will also take a very long-term view of where the advanced and emerging economies are heading through 2025.
