18.00 Networking Dinner
10 years after the "Great Recession" the world has recovered, although at different speeds in different parts of the world. When it seemed that growth was consolidating in most regions of the world some political changes have increased uncertainty worldwide. The election of Donald Trump as President of the United States has led to a questioning of Free Trade as a critical element in economic growth and development, which constituted a fundamental basis of globalization in recent decades. At the same time, the Brexit vote has led to what some analysts call an “existential crisis” in Europe, and changes in monetary policies and capital flows have created new conditions that increase uncertainty in emerging markets.
This Master Class will present the current state of the economy in several regions and countries and will discuss the potential future implications of the changes that we are witnessing at the local and global environment.
