What Bernard Baumohl Talks About:

What is the Outlook for the U.S. and International Economy?
Using both facts and humour, Mr. Baumohl lays out the opportunities and risks ahead for the U.S. and international economy. His talks cover the following themes: What is the outlook for consumer and business spending, jobs, inflation, interest rates and the dollar? What is the likely endgame in the U.S. – China trade war? What are the implications for the global economy? To what extent will the 2020 U.S. presidential election impact business activity? What are the main economic and geopolitical threats ahead? Most important of all – what actions can companies take to protect themselves against such disruptive events.

Geopolitical Risks: Where is the World Headed?
Rarely have business leaders and investors confronted so much uncertainty about the future, simply put – we live in a crisis-prone global economy. There is political paralysis in Washington, economic distress in Europe, dangerous conflicts in the Middle East and Eastern Europe – and rising tensions in Asia. You can almost hear the geopolitical pot boiling furiously. Yet the sobering fact is corporate managers and investors still need to make decisions – and be able to justify them. Mr. Baumohl tackles all the key issues: Which shocks are most likely to erupt in the future? What implications will they have for the economy? How can you protect your business with so many global storms brewing.
