COVID-19 knows no borders, and that is no less true for the impact on the economy. At the Conference Board, we believe the best way to tackle the high degree of economic uncertainty ahead of us is to develop numerous scenarios on the contraction and recovery paths based on assumptions of how the virus is both spreading and being contained.

Join us to examine scenarios around the globe and explore the implications for your business, including:

  • The global economic impact, in particular in the US, Europe and China;
  • How different industries will be affected;
  • The impact on unemployment and the labor force;
  • The policy response and its effects
