2019 CPBI Economic Forecast        

“Are we in the Ninth Inning already?”

The consensus of economists at the beginning of 2018 was rather optimistic – rightly enough – as Europe had finally picked up momentum and the United States had just implemented a significant reform of its tax system. It turned out that the U.S. economy was pretty much the “oasis of prosperity” as negative surprises abounded elsewhere around the world. Markets were jittery in the last months of the year, and even seemed to price in an upcoming recession.

Join us as Sébastien looks back at an eventful year and looks ahead to what’s to come. Is a recession imminent or were market participants simply overly pessimistic of late? Will we see faster growth outside of the U.S.? Are we already in the dreaded ninth inning of this business cycle, or do we have reasons to be optimistic?

This presentation will paint a broad picture of the global economy, the markets and how to navigate through this tweet-infused world.
