The Conference Board's latest Global Economic Outlook forecasts growth slowdowns in 2019 for both mature and emerging economies. This webcast will explore the causes of this slowdown and how businesses can prepare.
Join our panel of expert economists who will examine this global shift and respond to important questions, such as:
- Why is the Chinese economy losing momentum in consumption, investment and trade, and what role does trade tensions with the US play in these slowdowns?
- What are the factors allowing other emerging markets, such as India, Brazil and Mexico, to enjoy stronger performance?
- How quickly will the US economy slow as labor markets tighten?
- What impact will a Chinese slowdown and Brexit uncertainty have on Euro Area growth?
