The Outlook for the Global Economy: A reversion to trend growth—or worse?

Monday, March 11

07:30 pm - 09:00 pm

This increases the vulnerability to a shock and means that the risks of a recession will rise in 2020 and 2021. What could trigger such a recession? What policies, if any, do the world’s key economies have to fight the next downturn? Are political and policy uncertainty part of the problem?
