Following 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. While much of this uncertainty remains, the weeks following Joe Biden’s election win, coupled with the surprise results of the Georgia senate run-off, have done much to clarify the direction the US will be taking. 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.
