Window On: The World's Debt. How big is the problem really?
MARCH 27, 2019
More spending and less revenue means annual deficits keep rising and the world’s global debt burden keeps racketing up. How far can this go?
Recently some economists have argued that sustained low interest rates and more tolerance for overleveraged balance sheets could mean that critical levels of debt-to-GDP rates have increased. But how certain can we be of such an outcome? And why should business worry about this?
Join our expert business experts and economists as they address:
- How much has the national debt increased in the US and globally?
- Why is the tolerance for increased debt rising, and on what is it based?
- How do sustainable higher sovereign debt levels impact on business lending?
Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in the economic, business, and policy direction of the US and Global economy.
