World Economic Outlook update and macroeconomic implications of US election
It has been a chaotic year for the US, punctuated by a virus that has killed more than 200,000 Americans and reached even the White House. The country experienced its sharpest economic contraction since the second world war, followed by its fastest GDP growth in history. After the 3 November election of Joe Biden, the ensuing weeks should provide clarity over what direction the US will take. To address this, OMFIF convenes a panel to discuss the macroeconomic outlook under the next administration. Speakers assess the potential scenarios, market impact and effect on US-China relations.
