Plenary Session: The Global Economy & Corporate Strategy

The global economy is in an extraordinary state of flux. The Trump administration has amplified uncertainty in many parts of the economy, energy price fluctuations have strained markets, central banks remain confounded by the risks of deflation and the fear of inflation, the strong dollar is complicating global trade, the Chinese economy (and stock market) have potentially soured, and Europe has yet to shake off its malaise. These macroeconomic trends have significant implications for corporate strategy across a wide range of industries. This panel will review the state of the global economy and connect macroeconomic trends and causes to practical, bottom-line issues that arise in corporate boardrooms as directors face the challenge of assessing corporate strategy in a highly uncertain economic environment.
