"Current Economic Trends & Outlook and Their Importance to Risk Managers"




Date: Wednesday, June 17th 2020

Time: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM


Please join us on Wednesday, June 17th 2020 for a virtual session which will discuss the following:​
  • The Recovery: Now that curves are flattening and economies are opening up, what does the recovery look like? What are the key variables and assumptions?


  • Unemployment: Is this the bottom? What sectors continue to be vulnerable to additional layoffs and bankruptcies? What is a likely path to re-employment? Has the US or Europe done it better?


  • China's Recovery: How it might be applied to the expected recovery of the US? What are the macro implications for the deterioration in US-China relations, including trade?


  • Debt and Deleveraging: Will household deleveraging continue? How does government leveraging and household de-leveraging fit together?


  • Inflation: Will powerful shots of stimulus from governments and central banks push up inflation once the immediate COVID-19 crisis fades or will demand and wages stay low and offset inflationary monetary policy?
