Thank you for joining us on Thursday, November 17, for our latest Global Macro Call - Europe: Markets and Policy Amid War in Ukraine.
Our Global Macro Call focused on Europe, which is the epicenter of rising global recession risk. Economic data have generally held up better than expected, causing us to push out our recession call from 2022 to 2023. At the same time, the decline in the Euro looks like it has run out of steam, in part because the ECB remains focused on fighting inflation, regardless of negative repercussions for activity. This call featured Robin Brooks, Managing Director and Chief Economist, who gave an update to our forecasts and market views, followed by Mahmood Pradhan, formerly Deputy Director in the IMF’s European Department, who spoke about the difficult choices facing monetary and fiscal policy in the Euro zone. Martin Castellano, Head of Latin America research, provided an update on Brazil in the wake of the elections.
The session was interactive and will include Q&A from the audience.
