The world is coming to grips with the rise of populism. Across the developed world, the established order of economic and political liberalism is facing its most severe challenge since the end of the Cold War. Add regional disputes, volatile oil prices, and uncertain growth prospects, and your organization’s decision-making may be shaped by forces beyond your borders and beyond your control.

For a deeper understanding of external geopolitical factors, join Kip Beckman, the Conference Board’s Principal Economist for the global economy, for an interactive presentation and discussion. Kip will present the latest world economic outlook, based on The Conference Board of Canada’s quarterly economic forecast. He will also identify key risks globally and in each region of the world, and provide analysis of how much concern should be placed on these factors.

Webinar Highlights

During this webinar, Kip will discuss the key factors that will affect the world economic outlook in 2017:

  • The U.S. economy under the Trump Administration: early indications as we approach the end of the first 100 days
  • Brexit: the UK is about to invoke Article 50, setting off two years of negotiations with the European Union
  • European elections: elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany could provide further indications of whether the populist wave is gaining momentum
  • Has a new era of de-globalization started?
  • Implications of an aging population and weak productivity growth for the global economy
