The World Economy Dodged a Recession in 2019: Now what?

Monday, March 9

07:30 pm - 09:00 pm

Thanks to stimulus from the world’s central banks, weak growth did not lead to a recession last year. But we are facing even more daunting risks this year: US-Iran tensions, a wider trade that could affect Europe, the coronavirus, and mounting uncertainty around the US elections. Are central banks running out of ammunition to counter these threats? Will fiscal policy come to the rescue?
