Protectionism, populism and population shifts: 2019 global growth outlook
About this talk
As another year begins, there are risks to the global economy around every turn. The on-off trade war between the US and China is weakening sentiment, protracted Brexit negotiations are fuelling uncertainty, and rising rates in the US are sending emerging market currencies spiralling.
Are we on the cusp of a major slowdown in global growth, or on the brink of positive disruption? David Mann, Standard Chartered’s global chief economist, tells Euromoney he is optimistic.
•How long will the easing of trade tensions between the US and China last? Will the trade war start again soon?
•Are trade tensions damaging global growth?
•How much is Brexit impacting confidence in the UK and eurozone economies?
•Are changing demographics the biggest long-term threat for developed economies?
•Which economies will out-perform in 2019?
