Cloudy with a Chance of Tariffs and a Recession: 2020 Forecast Overview
The outlook for 2020 is especially foggy with talk of an impending recession and all the churn around tariffs. Several signals show increasing likelihood of a slowdown, yet risk assets surged in the first half of this year. Meanwhile, surcharges and suppliers’ increasing costs caused by tariffs are expected to drive the price of raw materials and create a captive market for the next few years. Our presenters offered an update on recession indicators, tariffs, and other factors that may impact how you invest and operate in 2020 and beyond.
At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to
- Better understand the goal of tariffs, their likely impact on inflation, the current and near-term trade environment, and potential global quotas
- Use economic indicators to guide 2020 planning
- Identify strategies for staying competitive
