Stronger growth momentum for the global economy, along with greater financial market turmoil, rising trade tensions, and a tightening labor market are creating big opportunities and risks that compete for our attention almost continuously.
While our latest global economic outlook is optimistic about the short-term outlook, we have also released various blogs addressing concerns about the sustainability of the recent recovery in global trade, the meaning of China-US trade balance (the focus of much political discourse), and evidence of downskilling in a tighter labor market. For more, please explore the insights below from our related research or join us for a live webcast.
These topics will remain a focus for the Global Economy Center in the coming months. But we’d like to hear from you: what other topics are on your mind? You’re invited to put your questions to us at Ask TCBTM Business Information Service.
Meanwhile, don’t forget to take a quick look at our short 3-minutes monthly outlook videos for the US, Europe and Emerging Markets from The Conference Board YouTube Channel. An easy way to stay informed real-time about the latest developments.
