The Economic Outlook and Its Implications:
Executives and investors must set their strategies with an eye to the economic outlook. The problem is that the outlook is so clouded right now. After the recent ‘Great Recession’, the economy began to grow. Still, there are justified fears of a double-dip recession. Almost all economic forecasts are too focused on predicting just one possible outcome. However, the current extraordinary uncertainty implies that various scenarios are quite possible. As a speaker Jeffrey Rosensweig will analyze the economic outlook, including a portrayal of the more likely scenarios. While discussing these scenarios over the relevant time horizons, he will highlight the implications of each for your industry and describe how audience members should prepare.
Global Economic, Financial, and Demographic Trends Impacting Investing:
Investors know that global investing is likely to continue to gain prominence. Will investments in foreign markets, both advanced and emerging, increase long-run returns for a given level of risk? Where do global investments properly fit into different investors’ portfolios? Do demographic factors overseas have even more of an impact than the aging of the US baby boom? Which economies will become large and sources of significant growth in the future? This session uses an array of trends to address such questions.
Deficits, Debt, and Possible Inflation:
The Record Government deficits from 2008 onward are a subject of constant debate. Should action be taken now to reduce the deficits? Or, do we need further economic stimulus even if it implies a growing deficit? On the one hand, the deficits are adding to a mammoth and exploding government debt. This debt could lead to inflation. Rosensweig will address the implications of debt accumulation and possible inflation for investors. On the other hand, the economy and particularly the job market remain stagnant. Could actions to cut the deficit, such as tax increases, cause a double-dip recession? Policymakers are faced with difficult choices and Rosensweig will analyze the impact of such choices on investors and business leaders.
Global Economic, Financial, and Demographic Trends Impacting Business Strategy:
Business executives looking to grow are bombarded with reports on the world’s emerging markets and the need to globalize. Powerful forces are helping populous nations such as China and India increasingly impact the global economy. Rosensweig will help to separate fact from fiction, portraying the trends that should guide a successful growth strategy.
The Global Impact on Your Industry:
Some industries know that global markets or global competitors are absolutely crucial to their future. If so, what strategies should firms in the industry adopt? Other industries are impacted by global forces in more subtle ways. However, they need to set strategies reflecting these forces now, because this session will show the growing global impacts on specific industries. Professor Rosensweig tailors his lectures to analyze the implications of trends and forecasts for audience members.
What Every Executive Should Know about the US and the Global Economy:
Executives as well as investors must constantly strive to learn and grow, especially given our increasingly competitive and global economy and job market. Keeping up with, and then extending your command of, both the US and the global economy and financial markets is a must. This session aims to help you not only survive, but to thrive in the current volatile and globally-competitive markets.
