Recent narratives regarding our economic outlook have been increasingly characterized by references to rising recession risk. On the other hand, there are economies around that world, such as Australia or China, that have not experienced a recession in decades.

There are several risks in the horizon that could tip the US – or even global – economy into a recession, but recession in 2020 is not a foregone conclusion.

Join our expert panel as they address the following questions:

  • What exactly is a recession?
  • How do you recognize it ahead of time?
  • Can recessions be prevented?
  • How can business leaders and organizations prepare for it?

Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in the economic, business, and policy direction of the US and global economy
