There are increasing signs that economies have passed the worst as lockdowns have been eased. Macro policy responses to the coronavirus pandemic have already reached historically unprecedented levels, with direct fiscal easing of over 7% of GDP. But spending by consumers and firms looks set to remain far below pre-virus levels.
Please join Brian Coulton, Chief Economist, in conversation with Tony Stringer, Chief Operating Officer of the Sovereigns Group, and Marina Stefani, Director and Economist, to discuss Fitch’s latest views on the global economic outlook. Topics of discussion will include:
· How robust are recent recovery signs?
· What will the path back to normality look like?
· What impact from historic macro policy easing responses?
Following prepared comments we will open for Q&A. Please submit your questions via the ‘Q&A’ box within the webinar console or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions will be addressed during the webinar.
