The World Economy: What Now?

This February 13, 2013 symposium sponsored by the Jerome A. Chazen Institute of International Business at Columbia Business School sized up growth prospects and risk factors in major economies and explored creative thinking on the rising demand for new governance in global financial institutions. With new leadership installed in several major countries, the panel offered 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.
