Macro-economic forecast for 2020
Ongoing geopolitical uncertainties have deeply affected the world economy in 2019. World trade has contracted and firms investment weakened, slowing down manufacturing activity in most regions. But up to now domestic demand and the service sector have been rather resilient in the US, in China as well as in the euro area. What are the perspectives for 2020? Will accommodative monetary policies be sufficient to help avoid a global recession? Those are the questions Anton Brender and Florence Pisani will try to answer in their coming presentation.
