What Bernard Baumohl Talks About:

What is the Outlook for the U.S. and International Economy?
Using both facts and humor, Mr. Baumohl lays out the road ahead for the U.S. and international economy.

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?

Principal Speaking Themes:

  • Is a recession near – or will the economy surprise with faster growth?
  • How strong will consumer and business spending be in the next two years?
  • How will the outcome of the 2020 election impact business activity?
  • What is the likely end game in the U.S. – China trade war?
