The Global and U.S. Economic Forecast: Implications for Your Industry
Resourceful leaders know that global markets and/or global competitors are crucial to the future of many industries. Each industry is impacted by U.S. and global economic forces in different ways. Given this and current economic uncertainty, what strategies should firms adopt? This session will discuss the business strategies your specific industry needs. Professor Rosensweig tailors his lectures to analyze the implications of trends and forecasts for particular audience members.
Global Economic, Financial, and Demographic Trends
Business executives are bombarded with reports on the world's emerging markets and the need to globalize. Powerful forces including technology and newfound political and economic openness are enabling populous nations such as China, India, Brazil, Mexico, and Indonesia to increasingly impact the global economy. Professor Rosensweig will help to separate fact from fiction, portraying the evolving global economic, financial, and demographic trends that drive a successful growth strategy for your business.
What Global Economic Trends Tell Investors About Portfolio Allocation
The past 15 years have seen nearly unprecedented volatility in both economies and asset markets worldwide. Professor Rosensweig will discuss what scenarios could occur in the volatile future and how to set investing strategies to deal with the current high level of uncertainty. The long-awaited rise of big emerging markets, such as China, India, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, Turkey, and Mexico, present new investment opportunities. The growing importance of these markets, combined with the troubled and debt-ridden yet massive US and European Union economies, make the present an exciting and opportune time to consider global investing strategies. Rosensweig will examine the potential of a new global economy, the need for a global diversification strategy and the implications of global linkages for investors.
What Every Executive Should Know about the US and the Global Economy
Successful executives as well as investors must continually strive to learn and grow, especially given the increasingly competitive 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 as an executive, but to thrive in the current and future volatile and globally competitive markets.
The Impact of Deficits, Debt, and Possible Inflation on Investors
Constant debate surrounds the record government deficits from 2008 onward. Should action be taken now to reduce the deficits? If so, should it be spending cuts, tax increases, or both? Or, is further economic stimulus needed 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. Professor Rosensweig will address the implications of debt accumulation and possible inflation for investors. On the other hand, the economy and particularly the job and housing markets remain stagnant. Could actions to cut the deficit, such as tax increases, derail economic growth? Policymakers are faced with difficult choices and Rosensweig will analyze the impact of such choices on investors and business leaders.
