Last year’s four Global Economic Conditions Survey reports each included a thematic piece of research looking at an economic issue in greater depth. The subjects covered were “20 years of the Euro”, “Economic challenges for the Chinese economy”, “Structural changes in a growing US economy” and “Implications of US-China trade tensions for the global economy”. These pieces are collected together in a new report just published. In this webinar Michael Taylor will present a summary of each issue, updating developments where necessary and drawing conclusions for the global economic outlook through the rest of 2020.
