Uncertainty in economic and labor market conditions is not unique to the United States. Understanding global labor markets is imperative in assessing international business and human capital objectives. TCB economists will discuss the overall 2014 U.S. labor market outlook and provide an overview of The Conference Board’s International Labor Comparisons program. For the U.S. and other worldwide economies, main trends in unemployment, inflation, compensation, and productivity will be reviewed, along with TCB’s updated 2014 economic forecasts.

As global interdependence intensifies, businesses increasingly need reliable measures of international competitiveness. Webcast participants will gain insights into key indicators of competitiveness impacting their businesses.
