The World Economy: What Now?
February 13, 2013
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
This special symposium will size up growth prospects and risk factors in major economies and explore creative thinking on the rising demand for new governance in global financial institutions. With new leadership installed in several major countries, the panel will offer predictions — and warnings — for what lies ahead as problems such as the eurozone crisis, the resolution of the US fiscal cliff, and a possible slowdown in Chinese growth continue to linger.
